LORD OF THE RINGS

0

Let me tell a tale;
It’s that of a monkey with an
injured tail.
As I watch him climb the farm
trees,
So many times he tries but still
he fails.
And so there comes a group of the
others,
They were all females but he was
the only male.
They help him up the tree and dance
around him,
And as a new King, he has to be
hailed.

The monkey becomes the jungle
king.
He becomes obsessed with power as;
He commands them louder to sing.
He jumps around like birds with
wings,
And so I call him lord of the
rings.
He ruled for a long time as he
wished.
The females entertained him and
made his dish,
His favorites were the Cat and
Tilapia fish
They bowed before him and called
him “lordship”
He reigned for a long time until
there came;
Some men with bulldozers and
tractors,
The men had to cut those trees to
earn money and settle their debtors,
And the others to make new
furniture.
And once again he lost his might
and power,
Nobody was willing to help for he
was a traitor.
