Yaacobi and Leidental [Temporary title]

A play with choruses

Down down, at the end of my back,
A magniMicent backside blooms,
And on either side of its delicate crack,
A pair of pink-coloured balloons.
Since the day I was born it’s been in tow,
In the folds of my dress it likes to hide;
Wherever I turn, wherever I go,

Big Tuches comes along for the ride.
