throwing the bones…

the president’s doctor
comes
from
a long history
of
bone readers
in fact
some of your
ancestors
may have sought
similar
spiritual wisdom
from
the analytical interpretations
of
patterns
of
bones
scattered
on
pieces
of
black cloth
there’s
something
ironic about
the color
of
the cloth
but
that’s another discussion
for now
we’ll
just focus
on
traditional techniques
of
offering
messages
to
the querent
in this case
the
president
and
although
there was no
press coverage
of
the
actual bone reading
that viral
las vegas toss
it
was
apparent
from
the moment
the helicopter arrived
on
the white house lawn
that
the bones
foretold
of
deeply concerning events
in
the president’s future
so
he was
immediately rushed
to
a military hospital
a sort
of
a medical bunker
designed
to
fend off
what
almost
300,000 americans
have died from
but
once again
that’s
another story
so
we’ll return
to
the central topic
of
this verse
bones
cast before swines
a story of melodrama
a masked man
full of steroids
sauntering
onto
the white house lawn
then
rising like a phoenix
into
an election sun
seeking
voters’ sympathy
within
the confines
of
a taxpayer sponsored
hypochondriac haven
but
alas
the bones
were misdiagnosed
necessitating
a hasty return
to
the white house
to
inquire
about
a divination
for
the nation
