Monkey Shines

Category: Humor/Satire


If people were like bonobos
Or so at least the story goes
We’d all live peacefully in trees
Eating fruit and picking fleas
But humans, filled with genes recessive,
Have evolved much more aggressive
Behaving more like chimpanzees
Driving rivals to their knees
Our aggression knows no bounds
In the air or on the ground
And if you think we’re not that simian
Just ask any Palestinian
Bombs and bullets on their heads
Drive them from their Arab beds
You see them on the evening news
Firing rockets at the Jews
Just another struggle sadly
A case of monkey’s behaving badly

  • Right, there can’t be any comparison with monkeys, they aren’t so agressive like us at least smile

  • It’s fine with me if you want to re-print my poem. I’m not sure how Litmocracy feels about it. If you do reprint it, send me a link for my scrap book.

  • Thanks Harris, great news for us! I’ll do the same thing, I think Litmocracy will agree with us.
