Bones and the boys
speak a lot in code.  

A lot of people
canít understand
just what they are saying.  

Of course thatís the idea
behind their special dialect.  

No one else but the ďinĒ group
is supposed to know
what they are saying.  

Itís all a big secret,
and for good reason.

I like this, Bobby.  It's a good thing we can't always understand everyone.

Keep in mind, I'm Robert E. Jordan, not the more famous Robert Jordan

Love Bobby

I love how this speaks deeply to the essence of Bones...another insight into a very private character (private in soul, i.e.)...thanks for sharing

Thanks Yann,

The "code" used by Bones is something like ebonics.

I liked the poem as usual.  Do you have two books published?  `City Boy Stays Alive` and `Felix`?  Are there more?  I am interested.
