The Foolish Scorchers, the Dramatic Ending

4. And when the gate arose again,
Those scorchers had good luck;
Though it becomes not tongue nor pen,
To tell just how they struck.

(I don't get it, do you?)

  1. I think I get it:

    And when the gate arose again
    Those scorchers had good luck (to be released from the gate upon which they were wrapped around)
    Though it is not very becoming of me to tell or write about . . .
    How they struck the ground (on their bottoms)

    That's my interpretation.
