Life-The Monkey’s Way

Dejected and dissipated
Assailed by arrogances
Armed with anger and
Alarmed by the ever increasing needs
Sought solution to my problems!

Guide directed to see around!

A monkey was passing by
An unconcerned loitering
Little ones hanging down-
The belly of the wanderer

“This could be your winning way”
Came the interlude from the guide
Uncompromising and unyielding
Looked around for my support

Saw a cat ferocious with
A mouthful of kitten oblivious
Of teeth or the world around
Mother made the decisions all
Progeny had no concern
Nothing harmed generation next

This could be my winning way
Where’s my mother to carry me?
