Monkeys in Moon

Monkeys in Moon Just a few lucky monkeys could be at moon And to be one among them was your boon; It’s real, they said, humans may come soon, And to pluck fruit before them, be a goon. The minion’s whisper of secret polemic numbed My senses! I woke up looking sanity thumbed A future for reposing ambition in me; it drummed My sleep away; away gone life, to hell succumbed. One morning, from my tall portico hung my fife; People stopped to talk of bygone tales of strife, And the town stifled my bio and it became rife, With legends, myths and filth; they felled my life. And then I found monkeys in life, real monkeys, Monkeys with more and more polemics, like junkies. And then truth dawned; hadn’t I reared monkeys In my heart for riches I wouldn’t be with monkeys.
