Bones is hanging out
down the end of the pier
at Penn Treaty Park,
about ten at night.  

Rich “funny guys” some times
come there in their yachts,
shopping for poor kids.  

A big one putts-up pier side.  

Two guys are in the yacht
wearing captain hats.  

Suddenly, out of no where,
a cop comes up beside Bones.  

The cop hollers down
at the two guys in the yacht:

“Hey, what are you guys doing
here at Penn Treaty Park
this time at night?”

“Oh, we’re just curious
what was up this way.”

“Yeah,
well you found out,
now get out of here.”

“Yes sir
thanks for the advice.”

“And you kid,
get the hell out of here,
I think I hear your mother calling.”

“Okay officer,
yeah,
you’re right,
I think I hear her too.”

If this means what I think it means, poor kid. Love the writing, though.

Thanks XGarapanX,

Yes, Bones was a poor kid, we all were.  Poor and hungry.  

On this night, the cop on the beat saved his life.

I'm pleased you loved the write.  Thanks for that.

The kid was fortunate that night.  Hopefully he will stay out of trouble in the future.
