I wish I were a monkey
I Wish I Were a Monkey
Dr. Allen Ropiecki
I wish I were a monkey, high up in a tree,
Looking down at those below, as they look up at me.
I swing around, from branch to branch, to get a better view,
They point and cheer, all seem amazed, the ease with which I flew.
So up I go, to and fro, swinging from one hand!
They continue watching closely, just how nimble that I am.
I drop some fruit for them to catch, in case theyâ€™re hungry too,
They step back to avoid them, they just donâ€™t have clue.
I sit and scratch and wonder, why the otherâ€™s there,
So I climbed down to greet them, but no one seemed to care.
They quickly went the other way, screaming as they ran,
Apparently, it seems to me, the monkey is the man!
