Adjectives Amended

    Perhaps it was the only subtle way for him to make one last futile gesture against the apparatchiks who will shortly deny him a job, a home and an existence!

    Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
    Till Earth and Sky stand presently at Gods great Judgment Seat
