Compensation

If you're looking up 'nataraja'
you won't find it in Chambers,
but just below where it should be
is 'nates' (nate ease) , the buttocks.
It's Latin and one's a natis.

Natives cut off Captain Cook's,
and his hands,
and presented them to his crew.

Not in there either
are Salyut and Paiute,
but as I've a keen nose
you can call me Nasute.

A hyperprotruding butt
is a nates astrut.
