“Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” was played
repeatedly by archeologists
when they discovered old hominid bones
going back 3.18 million years;
while drinking and celebrating the find,
they decided to name the girl Lucy.
Both bipedal and gracious tree-swinger,
Lucy was three-feet tall, skull cracked.
Lucy has sociological clout
because many laughed with “I Love Lucy,”
which still runs on cable television.
Yet some might love autobiography
of Maeve Leaky more than the Lucy show.
Beatles were goofing on Lewis Carroll.
