Monkey Business - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Behold the agile chimpanzee
swing easily from tree to tree
He sees no reason he should be
related in any way to me
I am quite sure the Chimpanzee
would deny vociferously
That men spring from his family tree.
Regard it as stupidity.
A claim which has to be denied.
Which touches on his family pride
the chimpanzees are satisfied
that followers of Darwin lied
Despite the similarities
men aren’t as wise as chimpanzees.

    Lovely write, all about those delightful chimpanzees, that one can't help but find irresistable. Great poem.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
