Around the Zoo: The Curious Monkey

by joetwo

Stuck in their cage

As onlookers gawk

Take a few photos

Then off with a walk

Most of the monkeys

Think nothing’s wrong

Except one who’s curious

‘Bout what’s going on

“Who are these people?”

He asks with a shout

“Snapping their cameras

And prancing about?”

“Why are they all excited

And making a fuss

If I didn’t know better

I’d say it’s for us!

But that is absurd

That cannot be

I’m not interesting

I’m just a monkey!”

So from then on

Each and every day

Our monkey looks out

To what comes his way

To simply go

And figure out

What this zoo nonsense

Is all about
