    I get letters sometimes. They bought a plantation: She weeds the tobacco, he offends the nation.

    "But sometimes I long to be landlocked/And to work in a bakery." This song keeps popping into my head at the most unlikely moments.

Lyrics

My mother was a Chinese trapeze artist, in pre-war Paris
Smuggling bombs for the underground
And she met my father at a fete in Aix-en-Provnence
He was disguised as a Russian cadet in the employ of the Axis

The Decemberists - My Mother Was a Chinese Trapeze Artist Lyrics
