Quandary Resolution 5132
procrustes, transhumance, zero-sum, psaltery
"You may call me a procrustes, but there is no room for any black sheep in MY flock," bellowed the preacher, as his lumpy, middle-aged daughter plucked out a dismal tune on the psaltery, "for God has entrusted me with the transhumance of your souls from one pasture of righteousness to the next, and He is playing a zero-sum game with the Devil, who lurks in the dark, narrow passes in between, ready to snatch any bold little lamb who catches his eye!"
