Purple Monkey

So much depends
Upon

The day at the
Zoo

With all the colorful beasts of
Nature

Watching all the animals
Live

Especially the thoughtless
Monkeys

The monkeys that are
Foolish

With their undulating
Tails

Then it peered up from behind a
Shadow

A monkey but it was
Purple

There was a purple monkey in the
Zoo

With eyes staring
Green

Into my ear it
Belched

So much depends
Upon

The crazy belching purple
Monkey

With the undulating foolish
Tails
