Am I a Monkey's Uncle?
Not so long ago a group of clever men
entered into our common domain under the sun Their singular and somber step in great contrast to the
richness of freedom we enjoyed then
When the black hats came into our rich
we watched them from above high as they
planted their iron cage in the center of a large
clearing and then as mysterious as they came they left us to our own devices.
As the clever men knew we would
we descended and approached the cage at first with great supicion and caution but when
we realized inside the cage were all the coconuts we would ever
want in plain sight for the taking
we slipped our arms in under the bar to take benefit of what was freely there
But when we tried to draw the coconuts out we could not as the black bars would not permit us It wasn't long after that the clever men returned and
we not willing to let go of what we surely grasped we lost our freedom not so long ago.
