Why you should never run in corridors with scissors in your hand

Returning to his old school
many years later,
he vanquished
his childhood fears
of chastisement

by running
in the corridor
with scissors in his hand

and, so doing,
liberated himself
from the claustrophobic confines
of his cloistered conformity.

He did this
for approximately
twelve seconds
before the tiger got him.
