Bones doesn’t mind
working hard for clients.  

He’ll dance naked,
and do other kinds
of weird things
clients ask him to do.  

The one thing
he doesn’t like
is to be hit.  

That can cause bruises,
and bruises can be unsightly,
they can cut into you take.  

They also hurt like hell,
they can be painful.

Thanks Eric,

Thanks for your concern for Bones.  It's a hard profession.

Thanks Yann,

Violence is never acceptable.  Unfortunately, Bones is subjected to way too much violence.

Bones may have to make a living but there has to be a better way out of the hood.
