Medley for a Bone Box

Everything works like a cracking sound box.
The cartoon sailor's blissful call
Brushes the sad murmur of my learned walk
By the Gloomy Cape of Good Hope.

Everything works like a cracking sound box.
The continuous crack-crack,sap,sap
Invites my Hasapiko dance
Through Ireland 's quarrelsome farmyards.

Everything sounds like a pair of horns
Breathing out through Symplegades Rocks.
Shhh,Listen!
Can you hear the sound of cracking bones?

    Wow. The mixing of a novel and Greek mythology and dance.I must admit I'd rather not take my chances with the Symplegades. I can hear my bones crushing already. Nicely done.
