Put the Pie Away Quietly and Without Fervor

Put the pie away.  Put the pie away quietly.  Put the pie away quietly and without fervor.  Put the pie away quietly and without fervor.  Put the pie away.  Put the pie away.  Put away the pie, quietly.  Without fervor.  Put the pie away.  With fervor, put the pie away.  With fervor, put the pie away quietly.  Remove the pie.  Remove the pie with a clamor.  Remove the pie.  Remove the pie with a clamor.  Remove the pie, quietly and with a clamor.  Remove the pie.  Quietly and with a clamor.  With a clamor, remove the pie.  With a clamor, quietly remove the pie.  With a clamor, quietly remove the pie and the fervor.  Quietly, remove the fervor.  And the clamor.  The fervor.  The pie.
