Lucy in museum

by Kevin T McEneaney

“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.
