Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Well, I'll Be A Monkeys Uncle

Today it appears it's going to be
One of those days the death of me
Unhappy is, the word of the day
At least just for now, is all I can't say

You see my friends are nowhere to find
They left for the jungle and left us behind
Not fair for I yearn to swing from tall trees
Eating some grubs, flossing with leaves

Family they too have grown up too fast
No time for a chimp, who dwells in the past
Yet still I dream of when all once was good
Treasured moments, bananas, eating all that we could

Today I am dressed in clothing not mine
Wool sweater and jeans designer the kind
For humans that think I'm one of them
Today we wish family, my ticket they'd send

One way and first class, back to brush
Where I felt so free where no one would hush
My cries of glee and panic sometimes
My heart today heavy, in thought we now whine

Today I will meet some new family members
Dressed up and in fashion, the month now November
Where Thanksgiving dinner they serve on a plate
Wishing we were back home, not living this fate

I'll meet someone new, a nephew or niece
Some drunk guy name Harry sitting down at this feast
As I sit in this chair not feeling so great
You see I'm a Chimp, not their new uncle Jake

Now if you can be so kind and pass me that slice of Banana cream pie!


With all the stress many will go through this day, I hope this write puts a smile on your face and brings laughter to your heart as life is too short..Blessings!
