Never leave your lab cages unlocked!

Today will live in infamy!

I messed up in the lab you see

I unlocked just one monkey cage

Then had to run and check a gauge

When I returned I was quite shocked

Ten monkey cages were unlocked!


Two monkeys swung from ceiling fans

High-fiving with their feet and hands

Three more had lit up Bunsen burners

They balanced them on pancake turners

One monkey had three feet of hose

and shoved it up another’s nose


The last three chimps were down the hall

And that was the worst thing of all

They'd entered a restricted space

The lab we call the “cloning place”

It didn’t take them very long

To make things go completely wrong


They’d mixed up all the DNA

How many kinds I cannot say

From birds and frogs and caribou

They’d cooked up a genetic stew

A seething glowing bubbling mass

Of kangaroo and wild ass


Who knows what the result will be

I guess we’ll have to wait and see

So here’s a lesson for the ages

Always lock your monkey cages!

For if you give them chance enough,

They’ll monkey with genetic stuff!
