There once was a monk with a frown,
who lived in a temple renowned.
but his life took a twist,
when a monkey he missed,
stole his prayer beads and skipped town!
The monk, filled with anger and strife,
chased the monkey throughout his life.
through forests and hills,
over rivers and rills,
their pursuit causing quite the strife.
With cunning and agility rare,
the monkey danced through the air.
dodging each strike,
with a cheeky delight,
leaving the monk in despair.
But one day, fate had a surprise,
when exhaustion befell the monkey's eyes.
the monk finally caught,
what he long sought,
and compassion replaced his fierce cries.
Realizing the creature's playful desire,
the monk's heart began to admire.
the monkey was lost,
seeking friendship and trust,
so the monk taught him peace and inspire.
They formed a bond so strong and true,
like brothers, in all that they'd do.
no more beads they'd chase,
instead, they'd embrace,
the joys of friendship, that's their value.
