1599 – Tickle Torture

Tickle Torture
Torture is wrong. Tickle torture, doubly so.

If I Had Eight Hands

If I had eight hands, oh
what things I could do!
I’d paint you a painting while tying my shoe.

I’d juggle nine apples
(it wouldn’t be hard)
while making a sandwich and raking the yard.

I’d clap out a rhythm
while playing guitar,
while chopping an onion, while fixing a car.

All eight would be busy
but when I was through,
I’d use forty fingers for tickling you.
