Unfortunately

Cranium, bones of the head,
Engineered to protect our brains
From any trauma that might strike.

The sutures fused together
Make a nice fit for all the bones
Giving a shield to danger.

Once fixed, the bones don’t move much
Which two men riding a tandem motor cycle
Found while riding on Ocean Parkway.

A peddler’s wagon
With a horse pulling the load
Got in the way sending the cyclists flying.

They hit a light pole at sixty miles per hour
Testing the engineering of those bones in their heads.
The electric pole won.
