Funny Bones Jones

Funny bones

Spoken by a man named Jones’

Jones’ bones are funny indeed

He keeps them strong by eating peas

Once upon a time one day

When all was quiet and the sky was grey

Here comes Jones with his funny bones

To light the hearts and right the wrongs

He tells the story of a little boy

Who played contently with his toy

An old man comes and asks the boy

“What’s the purpose of playing with that toy?”

The little boy stops and thinks awhile

And then he says with a smile

“This here toy I built myself”

“Cause I’m not a little boy I’m a little elf”

The old man looks on quite amazed

He stood and watched in a clouded daze

He’d remember this moment for the rest of his days

Who would have thought such a being existed?

Is it me or is life really twisted?

Jones’ bones are funny indeed

Funny bones

    Not only are your poems beautiful but you give them a sense of humor as well. You are very talented and versatile, and that is such a great combination.

    Funny Bones Mr. Jones!
    Indeed your words are fine,
    A smile you gave, and one I leave,
    while I read and enjoy your mind. 🙂
