BAILEYS
 
Bailey, from the Middle English bayles,
bayles being the outer walls
of medieval castles.
 
O bayle, grant us asylum lest we perish!
 
Bailey, from the Latin balium,
meaning something along the lines of heather thatch.
 
O balium, be our roofing!
 
Bailey, homophone of baillie,
which has to do with stewardship
or jurisdiction.
 
O baillie, show us scribblers lenience!
