Chris Pirillo as Jerry Lewis

Poetic Downfall

Someone asked
Mr. Bones
how he

creates his poetry,
“Well, in
my mind

I feel
like a rock guitarist

when he’s
playing lead guitar,
his eyes closed,

his mind
and fingers

the next
guitar lick,
until the song

becomes a classic.
Add a few words
and you’re done,

except for
that part
that makes

a bunch
of words
into a poem.”

Mr. Bones
strutted away arrogantly
before he slipped and fell.

That’s why
the French
love Mr. Bones so much!
