The Story Of A Castaway

It was an island with a beautiful landscape

On which subsisted a castaway lonely
Trees, birds and water were his company only

He waited day and night for an escape

He learnt to swim and readied a boat

Gathered food and water for the set off

Planned to push the boat at the wave’s trough

But the beauty of the island let him not

“Escape to the meddlesome civilization? ”

The idea doesn’t seemed to be right

“Why not settle here and live a life bright? ”

But his loneliness needed compensation

So, he travelled for many days till he reached the shore

He kidnapped a mother and her daughter

Fetched them to his place surrounded by water

On their arrival a monkey welcomed them ashore

A man, a woman, a girl and a monkey

Were the only inhabitants of the lonely land

From day one the mother had the escape planned

She knew, for their escape, the monkey is the key

The woman and the girl got the monkey trained

They taught the monkey all the trickery

And threw the monkey on the castaway named Hickory

Sure was he irritated and got the monkey chained

In the dark of the night the monkey ate some grapes

And in the silence of the night it meditated

In less than few moments the agitated

Army of apes arrived from the planet of the apes

The castaway was taken in their space ship

He was thrown back in to a crowded city

No body believed his story. Oh, what a pity

That is the story of a castaway and his trip.
