How many arms do we need?

How many arms do we need?
If I could add a few
how many more would I want,
a total of six or eight?
I could juggle more
be of excellence service
and wouldn’t need any help.

Now how do I make them?
Is there such a mold
or do I have to go from total scratch?
Is there some sort of box out there
that reads “Arm Mix.”
If I go on the internet
and type it in
how much content
would be gathered?
Would they try and sell me plastic limbs?
I need something made of a more authentic material.
I could just give it a try
pour some flour,
some eggs,
some stretchy stuff,
throw it all in the oven,
and bake.
What am I trying to eat it?

Would I be better off going robotic,
electrical with gears and cords
and powerful strings.
I’d probably electrocute myself.
I wonder if I can take from others
already made,
if I get to work early I could slip in
take a few as they’re still fresh
replace them with this goop.
Full scratch didn’t make my expectations
they were rather low
and still this is gross.

Does the dead need their limbs,
if they’re a donor than isn’t everything
free for the take?
I’m not a thief
I execute common courtesy.

Thanks for reading.
