Way up high

In a coconut tree

Chattered a monkey

Almost constantly


He taunted and teased me

He jumped up and down

He ran on the trunk

From the top to the ground


So one day I chased him

Right up that old tree

I yelled at that monkey

To please let me be


I was mad at that monkey

My eyes had turned red

Then that chattering beast

Threw a nut at my head


A coconut’s large

And it hurt quite a bit

I had to get down on the ground

And just sit


The monkey came down

And he smiled up at me

Then he chattered away

And climbed back up the tree


I shook my head

And got to my feet

Chattered back at the monkey

And then ran down the street

A delightful encounter well-shared via your verses, Melissa. I wonder if it is the same monkey as the one in my limerick:

A monkey from Kalamazoo
Managed to escape from the zoo
So glad to be free
From the top of a tree
He was heard playing the kazoo

Love and best wishes,

I love the witticism and intrinsic beauty of this little ditty
You have the gift of the gab. Keep projecting it !
