  • The 10-armed woman went seeking work.
    At an interview, she met the one-eyed man.

    'Show me what you can do', he said. So she
    typed 2000 words a minute with one hand,

    while taking down notes with another.
    She answered the phone and designed an ad,

    made some tea, wrote down appointments,
    paid a bill, and signed an invoice. On a card

    she made an index of everything in the world.
    'I'm not impressed' said the man, sadly.

    With her final hand the woman peeled a banana,
    which she then, slowly and knowingly, ate.

    The man bucked up. 'You are hired', he said,
    As the woman in blue cut off his head.
