Two Monkeys (Poems For Children) - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

Night descended and a monkey fell asleep
But in the depth of night he woke up with a scream,
In his sleep he saw a horrible dream
His fruits were been stolen by a wily old thief.

On waking up he yelled at a monkey fast asleep,
Get up you wicked, old seasoned thief
I just now saw you stealing my fruits
Now don’t pretend to be asleep, you old brute!

The other monkey on waking up said with a yawn
You are the biggest fool ever to be born
I was about to steal some diamonds and precious gems
But you woke me up before I could get them!

This is an old poem which I had written maybe more than two decades back. However, I am happy to present it to my invaluable readers on PH.
