March 19 - Poetry - Match a photo to a poem (#PhotoBlog365)

To be completely honest I did not match a photo to a poem, I matched a poem to a photo. But a match is a match and a bone is a bone. So here's a bone from unknown origins (it is just one of those things one finds on beaches and takes home) and a poem from a certain Mr. R. (unknown to me too, but I found the poem here):

Last Thursday,
A bone thief,
Entered my home,
Came to my room,
And stole my arm’s bone...
“Give me my bone back!”
I screamed at the thief,
"I need my arm's bone,
Like a branch,
Needs a leaf!

I use all my bones,
To keep me alive!
I need 206!
Not 205!
Give me my bone,
It’s calcium rich,
When I've got a big ball game,
I need bones to pitch!
Supporting my body,
Protecting inside,
Where heart, kidneys, lungs,
Where organs reside!
Give me my bone back!"
I yelled at the thief,
And finally he gave it,
What a relief…
He gave me my bone back,
And left without harm,
Now all the right bones,
Are in my right arm...

By the way, did you know that humans are actually born with 270 bones ? Thanks, Mr. R, for that info !

Good job! The challenge was only to match, so you fidn’t have to even worry sbout the sequence which came first, poem or photo…And you didn‘t have to translate 👍😜
