"I'd rendezvous with Janet

She bruised her pomegranate."

A beautiful Spring Sunday afternoon in the park, surely no-one is harbouring dark thoughts here?
"Spring is here, a-suh-puh-ring is here.
Life is skittles and life is beer.
I think the loveliest time of the year is the Spring.
I do, don't you? Course you do.
But there's one thing that makes Spring complete for me,
And makes ev'ry Sunday a treat for me.
All the world seems in tune
On a Spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park."
OK, so maybe one man is bent on carnage. Who is he?
