The ape lord was once The king of the clan But old age drove him forth To an isolated cave In search of peace and quiet But not because it was time One quiet evening With family sat he Enjoying the beauty Of prancing boys and girls When came the newest king And his own righteous men Pretending to visit In a much friendly way While evil intent thus Propelled his highness hence. The secret plot to kill Or maim the former king Was whispered to his ears By a good secret spy And the old man at once Did drop the friendly smile And heaving his big frame Knocked off the nearest one And the others all fled Leaving that one behind Then lifting the fallen Like a castrated hog He threw him after them And said this to their back: "There is a day and time Appointed for all to die But this is not the day. When the day comes Ours will be a clamorous exit We shall swim in the blood Of our enemies And make a boat with their corpses To ride triumphantly to eternity!"

Interesting way to say, not welcomed. Well to bad, someone's always trying to ruin what is good. Love the poem. LINDA
