The Cause Of Death

Mr. Bones hears
about Arafat
and listens

to all
the speculation
about the cause

of his death.
The flu,

cancer, stroke,
heart disease, liver failure,
absence of protest poetry.

Mr. Bones
slams his fist
on the desk

and spits out
this gem,
"It was

the Mossad,"
he insists,

gradually poisoned him
his last months of house arrest!"

However uncanny,
Mr. Bones is
never wrong about this stuff.
