it is good to stand with a person standing behind your back
to use their arms as your arms
to unzip your pants
as a person standing in front of you
uses your arms as their arms
to unzip their pants
and the person in back rips off the arms
of the person in front
and uses the severed arms as their own severed arms
to unzip their pants.
the wind sucks three pairs of genitals
out of three pairs of unzipped pants
and blows the genitals into a tree.
now your genitals are stuck in a tree
and the person in front of you is bleeding on your shirt.
it is good to stand with a person standing behind your back
to use their arms as your arms
to unbutton your shirt.
