Final post from Lenten gathering 11 April

40 DAYS and 40 NIGHTS:
an itchy twitter

the pots shown below represent the forty days of Lent and the tiles the forty nights.
The puzzle is first to arrange the tiles so that they form the following text which has forty syllables and one hundred and forty characters, the length of a full twitter. Then the pots sit on the tiles in the sequence of the week, starting on (Ash) Wednesday and ending on this Holy Saturday (omitting Sundays)

. . . . the underclothing was completely unwrinkled before they were enclosed in their space suits, lest an unsratchable itch arise that shld torment its victim into madness . . . .
