In poetry:

Which was tried at Guildford 'sizes, this day week as ever was.

For his wife was stolen from him—he'd have vengeance on the thief.

Since averaged over the law of (W0, M), the set W is distributed as a Brownian web, it follows that for a.e. realization of (W0, M), the compact set W ⊂ Π will satify all the a.s. properties of a Brownian web, such as the z and π↑z for classification of special points.
