Lazy Bones was his name.
He was bone lazy
and full of bones.
He was so bony
and so lazy
that people thought,
“How could someone who is so lazy be so bony?”
And others thought,
“How could someone who is so bony be so lazy?”
“Hereditary” they said.
He got his mother’s bony genes and
his father’s lazy genes.
Or was it the other way around?
He always thought that his name on his
birth certificate was Lazy Bones.
But, it wasn’t til later in life that he
found out his real name was Graham Jones.
“What am I to do now?” he thought.
He was no longer who he thought he was, you see.
“I can be whoever I want to be”
And suddenly, he felt very at ease.
