The absence of which, who could withstand?

The evolution thereof corresponds with us

Expansion likewise

Enabler of movement, our fundamental support

Protection for such living things

Joints and muscles – we limber on

Muscle contract, muscle relax

A framework within

Exoskeleton outside

So ribs protect – heart and lung surround

Skull protect – shield the brain

Where two or more join, so joints comprise

A fundamental function

A vital role to play

Solid and strong, yet spongy within

Inner bone marrow – tissue living

Small bones of the inner ear

Larger bones increasing gear

Leg bone, arm bone, rendered to walk alone

High bone, thigh bone, ever so required bone
