You are like a monkey puzzle tree
monkeys cannot climb
they cannot agree
on a way to ascend
your angry spine.
Their branches are a conundrum a solution
cannot be found
the monkeys all make a squawking kind of sound.
The monkeys have a headache they cannot solve
we have to wait for our ideas to evolve
before they can climb this tree.
But you are a walking talking puzzle
we don’t need, our brain is no muscle
but it needs a workout from time to time
patterns form rhymes
across the pages to spine
of the book.
But monkeys cannot read and humans won’t look
where you cast aspersions we mistook
for common sense
we can’t give you up for lent
monkey puzzle tree are misspent
like our youth
can monkeys really not climb these trees?
do we even care the truth bleeds
like monkey’s well worn hands
does anyone really understand?
