A Rotten Apple Spoils The Whole Barrel, A Bad Monkey Is Dangerous For The Group... Poem by Sando Hussam

A Rotten Apple Spoils The Whole Barrel, A Bad Monkey Is Dangerous For The Group...

Rating: 4.9

A rotten apple spoils the whole barrel,
a bad monkey is dangerous for the group,
for they can cause chaos and peril,
and leave everyone in a state of troupe,
their mischief and mischief-making ways,
can bring the whole troop down,
causing the group to fray,
and leave them all with a frown.

So beware of the monkey who's bad,
for their actions can have grave effect,
and if their behavior makes you mad,
It's time to show them the proper respect,
for a good monkey is a valuable member,
of a successful troop that thrives,
they're essential to help the group endeavor,
and ensure everyone survives.

A group of monkeys, good or bad monkeys, may be called a troop, a troupe, or a tribe according to my research. I find nothing online to suggest (to me) that 'troupe' is used correcctly in this poem.

Sando sent me: 'I am uncertain about the usage of 'to show them the proper respect' in America. In Asian countries, particularly those that were colonized by the British, it is employed as a form of mockery to indicate 'to put them in their rightful position. ''
