and Ching-hua's shackles)


KISSINGER
(as Lao Szu)
Oh what a day!
I thought I'd die!
That luscious thigh
that swelling breast
scented and greased,
a sacrifice
running with juice
at my caress.
She was so hot
I was hard-put
to be polite
when the first cut
... Come on you slut!...
Scored her brown skin
I started in,
man upon hen!
