I can tell by looking that he is one of my ancestors, Valsa.

We do share DNA but we were made in God's imagine so not our ancestor. When God made humans, He said that it was good, very good. Thank you for your visit to my page and may this Easter be the best for you and yours. Sara

I watch them bouncing and making trouble, and they appear to be very clever. Valsa, your Haiku is well written.

Internationally, monkeys are famous for defecating in a paw then tossing it at opponents, so your Haiku is spot on monkey business! Aloha!

They are so cute to watch Valsa, it's such a shame they are used in experiments because of man's greed. Tom

I see them swinging and playing mischief---they are very intelligent. Well crafted poem, Valsa.

A line from an old poem I once read about monkeys...."yes man descended the ornery cuss, but brother he didn't descend from us"

I prefer to stick to the bible and consider Adam and Eve as created by God. Otherwise a great haiku.

Monkeys are monkeys and humans are humans, I don't believe in them being our ancestors, the first two lines are brilliant, Valsa:)
