Bony Bob got da boogety blues
so he lace up his boogety shoes.
Start to dance when he hear that beat
tappin’ and flappin’ his bony feet.
As he jive and as he rock
tarsals rattle inside his sock.
Toe bone disconnected from the foot bone…
Foot bone disconnected from the ankle bone…
The ghostly band they wail that tune.
Werewolf choir howl at the moon.
Banshees let out a tuneful roar.
Bony Bob clatters like a silverware drawer.
Tibias tremble, fibulas sway
patellas pop every which-a-way.
Shin bone disconnected from the knee bone…
Knee bone disconnected from the thigh bone…
Bony Bob gyrates his hips
he sing along without no lips.
Vertebrae sitting one atop another
say goodbye to each nearby brother.
Arm bones flutter like sheets in a gale
carpals clatter-scatter, fall like hail.
Hip bone disconnected from the back bone…
Backbone disconnected from the arm bone…
Neck it swivel and rotate
swingin’ round that bony pate.
Chin bone it unhinge and drop.
But still that bone man jitter-bop.
Til every bone it come undone
and lie in a heap
neath the rising sun.
Neck bone’s disconnected from the back bone…
Back bone’s disconnected from the head bone…
Daylight find nothing but a bony pile
but I swear them teeth
wear a bony smile.
Happy Halloween Everybody
Bop until you
Note: Halloween must bring out my inner poet. Here is last year’s Halloween poem.
