You know what would help here? Not having a new keyword. So if we could reuse
an existing keyword in a way that it can't today be used, it could convey the
meaning we need.

And there is such a keyword: return.

int return monkey;

This would probably require that the keyword not appear in the first position,
so as to not be confused for a return statement.
