The human skellington
Has two hundred and six
Bones which is quite a lot
More than elephants and
Most people know about
Half a dozen bones;
My favourites are the
Tiny ossicles of the inner
Ear, the Malleus, Incus and
Stapes or Hammer, Stirrup
And Anvil;
I am also a fan of the
Scapula or shoulder blade
Which in sheep is used for
I do not like the kneecap
Or the vomer;
You may need to
bone up
On that one
