Famous Persons Number Something-or-'Nother

Leon Trotsky at His Own Leisure

Clattering around the Vermont pad
where he and his family were vacationing one morning,
Leon trotted out the hot chocolate and the warm jumpsuits
and the skis, for this was a time of leisure,
many years of existing at both warm and cold temperatures
at the same time. Both later and before, he reflected,
a bit of blood could teach the same lesson.
