Guest Of Honor - Poem by Dorsey Baker

I see your skeleton
through your flimsy clothes
because you are
wearing clothes
that don't hide much nakedness
its show and tell
everybody comes
to watch
you've offered yourself
for inspection
and everyone has come to inspect
don't complain
about their behavior
when you've invited
their disrespect

its just a family
of skin and bones
and a choir
of monotones!
