Part 5 - Why Monkey Does - Poem by Leslie Alexis

What monkey sees, that’s what monkey will do,
Why else will he expend his days in a tree?
Reasons are same as why the next bird flew;
The ground at times must look pleasing to he,
But his antecedent on foot he didn’t see.
To soar alone he knows, so he does soar.
Mango will never germinate a pea,
Let’s find just one cheetah that’s born from boar,
Tell me, does he have the lion’s fierce roar?
Even I laugh at horses with birds’ feet.
This realm of fantasy fools alone explore.
When man grins big, you can see monkey teeth.
Ah yes, that’s why I love a sticky bun;
The father’s ways are shown within his son.
