Grumpy Monkey

What a grumpy monkey you are The grumpiest of monkeys I’ve seen by far Have they taken your bananas, stolen your grapes? Is that the reason you’re the grumpiest of apes? You are usually quite mellow, not pent up with rage But wait……..are you running free, or stuck in a cage? For if you are not running wild and free Then it is little wonder it’s a grumpy monkey I see Or is there something more profound on your mind? Like the state of the world run by mankind Forests are dwindling and not in great shape Maybe the world would be better if run by an ape While sitting in judgement sat staring at me Don’t judge all mankind by the world that you see For just like monkeys there are good and there’s bad That we can’t work together, is that why you’re sad?

    Well, if the world were run by the ape kingdom it would surely be a lot different..I wonder if there is really enough liveable land for all to coexist without fighting?..A little food for though..Enjoyed reading your work..I think I might be a grumpy ape today..It is Monday..Sara

    A subtle poem with a strong statement. Strong use of metaphors in this piece. Could be somewhat offensive to some...dependent on how it is interpreted
