Quandary Resolution 4779
mammonism, Penrose stairs, berceuse, saccharine
After a lifetime of mammonism, old Brissolm felt he was rich enough to allow himself a great luxury:  the construction of a set of Penrose stairs around the perimeter of his bedchamber, so that throughout the night as he lay dozing he might be encircled by a whole chapter of Benedictine monks, endlessly trudging upward without ever escaping his orbit, and all the while chanting a saccharine berceuse of his own composition.
