Mr. Bones Was Just Another Casualty Of War
Or At least Some Of His Bones Were

As you can
well imagine,
(go ahead, imagine!)

Mr. Bones
fell flat on his behind
and broke

a tailbone to boot!
Plaster just
don’t stick

that well
to the butt,
and they

don’t make crutches
for that
part of the anatomy.

But, his mouth
was still intact,
so Mr. Bones

cursed the war
and was
hobbled home by Henry.
