  • If a gunslinger unslings a gun,

    what does an unslinger do to have fun?

    Does he unholster his gun super-quickly

    or does he insert it therein with a sickly

    grin and a word of appeasement?

    And for his easement,

    what's there to bolster a

    pseudo-upholsterer,

    the last of his cover being blown?
