The "why" of the title

This is a tune I put together one morning while drinking coffee and trying to become lucid. The title refers to the pewter plugs on the foot-joints of old English flutes that you put oil on to make them seal before playing.

I hear this tune in my head played only moderately fast, with a bit of a melancholy feel.

Great tune!
Shall be played slowly and and a bit polyphonically (Lunasa-like?)
