They had stood there for most of the day like that, beating the drums, playing their song. The people passing by would grin or laugh or throw a coin, but always wondered why these men stood so close, with one's head on the other's shoulder. Perhaps it was a show. Perhaps they were very close. Nobody knew, but they listened and gave their money and applauded anyway.
Near the end of the day, with their percussion coming to a close, the taller one turned to the other, and was heard to utter, "Paullie my friend, when this glue wears off, I'm going to hurt you."
