Boneyard

A shinbone from Al Capone
comes up for sale today.
There should be lots of interest,
but how much would you pay?

A jawbone from Sly Stallone
would fetch a handsome fee,
but not as much as molars
from the gob of Kiki Dee.

How about a femur,
as worn by Woody Guthrie,
or the sesamoid bones of Davy Jones,
the pretty one from the Monkees?

Roll up, roll up, don’t miss this chance,
be sure to stake your claim
— your very own piece of history
from the boneyard of fame.
