Henry Had A Dream, August 28, 1963

Mr. Bones pulled
Jesse Jackson out the way
so he could grab

the Reverend from the balcony
back into the hotel room.
" What’s the matter

young man?" The Reverend uttered
as bullets rang out
and people scrambled.

The Reverend looked
grateful and shook
Mr. Bones’ hand.

One man can not stop
or injustice,

one man can not stop
the evil ways of man
and one man can not stop

this evil country.
But Mr. Bones and Henry
try their best

and then
they head back to the Bat Cave
until Dubya the Butler kicks them out.
