With The Young Robert Wagner

Henry like white women, mostly college girls.
But Mr. Bones chase only black girls.

No milk mustache for him.
He never hung out with Reggie and Veronica.

Henry’s a jughead and everybody knows it.
He’s ain’t writ no poem, pretty bad

considering he’s Berryman’s alter ego. Eh?
Mr. Bones is quite a Romeo.

At this, Henry’s face gets red,
and redder if they invent the color.

Mr. Bones comes up for air.
That girl was in Beneath The 12 Mile Reef---

he’s gasping in Henry’s face.
The whiff knocks him conscious.
