Debra Lafave

Mr. Bones’ Elegy For The American Buey

Mr. Bones thinks this country
is turning into a crock of crap,
Americans screaming for freedom & justice

& democracy & doing just the opposite.
Henry tries to calm him down,
but when Mr. Bones

is not in anger management classes
he can go ballistic
and common sense goes belly-up.

Mr. Bones says why the hell
do they take a 12 year-old murderer
and certify him as an adult

so they can throw the book at him?
Using this logic,
Mr. Bones thinks that

Debra Lafave’s 14 year-old victim
should also be certified as an adult,
that way they’re both consenting adults!
