Southern Man

Mr. Bones tells
this story:
" I was

cutting a rug
down at a place
called The Little Brown Jug

with a girl named
Linda Lou England
when she

forced me to
get naked
and perform

cunning linguistic acts
which turned out
to be

anti-war poetry."
Henry told Mr. Bones,
"Bones, you jerk off,

that sounds a lot
like a Lynyrd Skynyrd song."
Mr. Bones got angry

and told Henry
in no uncertain terms,
"Ronnie stole the frigging lyrics from me, bitch!"

Henry realized, all too late,
that the Age of Reason
had bypassed Mr.Bones a la mode.
