what how


Hey Skeleton

you look pretty thin

with that lipless smile

and those crooked teeth.


You must have been fleshy before

full of carnal desires and needs

what could you possibly want more

your flesh is gone feeding the weeds


you must have had many friends too

(most of them worms)

How come you are all alone, are you?



I need your bony toe

to scratch an itch

in the ear

of my fear


I hear


I hear howls and barking

Skeleton go hide and be gone

for a dog or two is coming

and they want your biggest bone
why who
