Gentle Monkey

A Poem for Bloggers Unite for the Gulf & Save Our Planet

O  gentle monkey,
what kindnesses you fragile beast?
What cradle of earthly benefaction
affords you such advantage?

This world is not a rental –
some alluvial apartment.
Some contemporaneous assemblage
of disposable apish whims

O simple monkey,
of isolated intellect, such thinking.
Of such serendipitous pedigree.
What is your riposte?

Your cave is no commodity,
but the nursery of your nakedness.
A reliquary for your heart
and its sleeping keep-sakes.

O fragile monkey,
how you sanitise – intellectualise!
How your defenceless hands
press over your downy ears

Your adored spirit not owed
to some esoteric construct, not
to some contrived, affected enterprise,
but to this special fragment –

this sheltering, terrestrial sphere.
