Building Bones

Building Bones

A Chapter by Dave Brown



In an effort to reduce global warming

And stop our forest from going to hell

I thought I’d make furniture from bones

Thinking it could work just as well


I’ll admit there were a few complaints

As I sorted through all the age zones

But since there were so many people about

I could hazard some occasional groans


A footstool was the first I constructed

Using the feet of an unsuspecting pair

Then from two others, both feet and legs

To make a comfortable rocking chair


Cupboard hand-els worked really well

With an extra benefit from each door

While finger nails held things together

Hand-els picked things up off the floor


Unfortunately, a cook neighbor being obtuse

Took my skull for his very own use

With his thoughts just relating to being fed

He used it to make a loaf of banana head
