Concoct with me the safest situation imaginable.

.every ER doctor's dream

a situation

in which

there is a huge dusty track circling the village square.

in which

heavily decorated horses wearing amulets, wooden jewelry, and headpieces
are racing each other

in which

the horses are drunk

the riders are drunk

riding bareback

and the crowd lining both sides of the track, are drunk.

in which

the dust so thick

you can barely see the horses

until they gallop right past you.

where the dancing

the real drinking

is in the middle of the circle

and the only way to get there

is to dart out in front of the horses

the whole village was there


the safest situation imaginable
