Geier means vulture.
Gyer or Geier?

google google

Vulture .... but to "pern in a gyer" is to move as a hawk in a spiral

hmmm

PIRN: noun and verb. Now Scottish and dialect. As noun also ‘pern,’ Late Middle English [origin unknown: cf, ‘pirl’] A) noun: 1. a small cylinder on which thread, etc. is wound; a bobbin, a spool, a reel; this wound with thread, etc. 2. Thread wound on a bobbin, etc. ‘rare.’ Early 18th century. B) verb transitive: Wind or reel (thread, etc.) on a bobbin, etc. Scottish. Early 19th century.

PIRL: verb and noun Scottish dialect. Late Middle English [probably imitative] A) verb transitive and intransitive: Whirl, revolve. Late Middle English. 2. Twist or spin (threads or fibers) into cord, braid, etc. Early 16th century. 3. verb intransitive: Of water smoke, etc.: curl, ripple. Late 18th century. B) noun: A ripple on water, a twist, a curl. Late 15th century.
‘perne in a gyre’ definitely means ‘a spinning bobbin’
Bullshit ..

Read Yeats:
“O sages standing in God's holy fire / As in the gold mosaic of a wall, /Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre, / And be the singing-masters of my soul./ Consume my heart away; sick with desire / And fastened to a dying animal/ It knows not what it is; and gather me / Into the artifice of eternity.”
The clear allusion is to flight ... "spinning bobbin" I'll kick his ass.

It suggests the downward flight of a hawk coming to earth brining God's message. Clear as day.

Where were we?

Giant lizards are not "apprehended", they are "encouraged". And they do not have "masters" (that is slave talk) they have "human companions".

We are very progressive down here when it comes to reptiles.

She was, sadly, consumed by one of our immigrant Giant Pythons.

We wouldn't want to give Viagra to Florida.





That would put it in the Bermuda Triangle.
Such potential!
