Embers, Ash, cinders

and the rank smell of despair

nothing to look forward to but death
Same old nonsense.

Having a bad day, Flaneur?

Quite clever, that.

I always like the ones I haven't a clue about, which turn out to be obvious when someone gets the answer.

I’m afraid most of the clues are like that to me 🥺

And I always hate the ones I haven't a clue about, which turn out to be not at all obvious because no-one seems able to get the answer and we all need loads of guidance and then don't understand the answer when someone arrives at this unknown destination and doesn't know they've arrived.............. :D :D

This, on the other hand, was a very nice (= precise) and pleasing clue.
