babies have a lot of bones

more than they'll later use
for bones seek out their kinfolk
and to other bones, they'll fuse
.
a baby has no kneecaps
floating underneath their skin
but they aren't really needed
for a baby doesn't sin
.
those sinners need their kneecaps
when they kneel and start to pray
for God depends on knee mail
to be sent to him each day
.
a patella's an umbrella
made to keep one safe from hell
for hell can be a nasty place
as far as i can tell
.
but let's get back to babies
with a pure unwrinkled mind
the world at large, unnoticed
by their faith, entirely blind
.
some folks baptize their babies
for insurance, i suppose
to keep them from the clutches
of those dark satanic foes
.
but when they've aged a bit
and pray to God to hear their pleas
then they will thank the lord
that they have kneecaps in their knees
