All's well that ends, question.

can I do something at all for you?
can I do something for you at all
can I do something for you.
can I do something
can I do
can I
can I for you I mean for you
can I mine for you something
can I help something
can I do something I mean since for you it can't go like that.

is there anything else at all I can do for you?
is there anything else, I mean something you'd find fun
can I, I mean, can I ask you a question you'd find fun.
can I ask a question that's really fun for you.
or should I rather not
or should I rather I mean should I
or should it not be
or is that already all
or was that it
or what

or what now

what is it then.

what is it then that's really going on here
what is it then that's really going on herewith
what is it then that's really herewith going on
what is it then that here for a pigpen
that's really not how things work.
that here's no fun for anyone
what kind of corpses lying about are they then.
that stinks to high heaven.
that is disgusting.
that's a storm.
that is clearly an ordeal.
what kind of corpses gone wild are lying about here.
Why do they lie about, if I might ask.
They don't belong like that. They belong in the trash.
They're dead aren't they if I might ask
they are in fact corpses if I might ask.
they are in fact not us if I might ask.
they are in fact others if I might ask.
they are the corpses of other people if I might ask.
they should indeed be forbidden here.
they should indeed be in other people's rubbish.
they should indeed be in the desert
that is indeed no world.
that is in fact a
a fraud
mask
the rent.
that is indeed a false fact of claim.
they're no sons of man
that's someone else.
they should get out of here.
this here is not a home game.
that's surely a joke if I may ask.
that will be past due, right
that will stop at some point when, right?
that solves itself, right?
you don't have to ask long, right?
that'll all come to an end.
that works, but also not at all.
can't bear to look at that any more.
that is ashameful.
that is a vaste of time.
yes wordlessly
yes, certainly
yes

if I might ask

if I might ask

if I might
