Sabbatical Over

Having been away for precisely that amount of time, during which he had risen to the dizzy depths of Professor of Egg-timer Technology at the Ununiversity of Turn Second Left at the Traffic Lights, Kenneth Chinook-Helicopter (who he?) realized that not all advice was of sound mind and body. Or, as the cannibal Marie-Antoinette so eloquently put it: “Let them eat each other.
   Meandering freezingly through the snow, Kenneth spoke at length about his sabbatical as curator of nests and eggs (nests and eggs) at the John F. Kennedy Space Museum for Communist Football. “We used to cultivate bonsai democracies with nail scissors and slightly quizzical expressions, which suited some better than others, though not always. Then we set fire to them.”
