The Monkey in the Ark

Of all the things that happened in Noah's Ark,
The strangest ever was when the monkey lied to Prophet Noah
One day he climbed onto the roof of the Ark,
And felt a hankering after some mischievous antics
Therefore, he let out a very loud scream:
Help birds and fishes, help!
A mighty wave is about to overcome and destroy me
At once, the Prophet dispatched the eagles to him;
However, they found him playing and having fun

[Hata Bildir]
