My Pet Monkey by Suri Ben Noah


I came across a monkey so dear

So cute it was, I loved it truly

My love I expressed without fear

Though the monkey at times turned unruly

Like any other monkey it did throw tantrums

But I couldn’t care less or more

For I loved it in all its moods and forms

and my love continued to grow

I loved the monkey so much

That the master soon became the slave

And very soon things were such

That the monkey I did crave

The monkey soon commanded

As was a monkey’s won’t to be

And I did whatever it demanded

As much a donkey as I could be

One fine day the monkey decided

That it was fed up of me

An opportunity it was then provided

To walk out on me

As was a monkey’s wont to do

It swung from branch to branch

And I was left with nothing better to do

But be just a lonely unused branch

The branch that once was filled with joy

Has become desolate now

After all it was fooled by a monkey’s ploy

And remains still and silent now

I now miss my monkey love

My one and only true love.

Her tantrums and her monkey tricks

I continue to miss them all.

But now I’ve learn’t my lesson

I’ve learn’t not to cry

The monkey has fulfilled its mission

Of making my tears run dry

I now wait in hope so vain

For the return of my monkey

With no tears but only pain

Is this the reward for this donkey?
