INKTOBER 2019: Day 6. Husky

I mean, just look at him–hardly any meat on those bones!

Sticks and Stones and Bared Bones

Did I ever tell you the story of Gordie Landusky?
The boys used to taunt him, ’cause he was, y’know, kinda husky.
He tried to tell’em he wasn’t fat, he was just big-boned.
But they’d spit in his face, and hit him until he moaned.

Well one day, Gordie finally got firetruckin’ fed-up
And uff-da, did he find a way to make’em shut up–
He peeled the skin from his chest like curtains off a stage–
And gave’em an eye-full of his bare-boned rib cage!

He tapped along his ribs and wiggled his fingers in the spaces–
And their eyes popped outta their heads, and their jaws fell off their faces!
Well, I’ll tell ya, those boys never again called ol’ Gordie fat.
To be honest, they never said much of anything after that.
