Just something that came to me about my current relationship.

Monkey, monkey on my back, should I make you hit the rails clickety clack.

Hit the rails, this time for real, clickety clack, how does it feel, to be the one being made to sqeal.

Scratching, itching, gnawing at truth, and you're the one who's calling me uncouth.

Watching, waiting, and deciding if, when, and how, should I tame this monkey, or let it drown.

If I should let the monkey drown, then will I be, confident, calm, and settled down?

Or will I wander, constantly, looking, and waiting, for another monkey to drop down and land on me?

I agree with Cliff. It reminds me of some things that I have been through but in this singsong rhythm it made me smile. Very well done! (((HUGS))) Janet

The singsong rhythm of the poem reflects not only the turbulence of the one relationship, but of just about all the ones humans go through. Lots of fun!
