The Monkey Stared Hard At Me... Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

The Monkey Stared Hard At Me...

The monkey stared hard at me;
Imitating him I was?
It was clear his birth right;
Who I thought I was?
I could feel a bit ashamed;
How would I answer back?
Outside he was watching from;
It was me behind bars...

We think we humans are superior to every other being in this universe. How come this? Think how a virus works, for that matter. Thanks for your analytical feedback Rose Marie. Liked

I love this poem. The tables were turned and guess who was behind bars and who was imitating who? Wonderful. Maybe the monkey will have the last laugh on us humans too?
