Monkeys




Two brass monkeys
one brass bitch;
devil to pay
and no hot pitch.

Iron monkeys
stuck in a ditch;
devil to pay
and no hot pitch.

Golden monkeys
growing rich;
devil to pay
and no hot pitch.

Sleepy monkey
at the switch;
devil to pay
and no hot pitch.

All the monkeys,
which is which?
Devil to pay
and no hot pitch.

I was pointed in your direction by Absolute Vanilla and am impressed by the clarity of your poems.
I will place a link to you on The Far Queue and hope you will visit me there :]

*waves to Pisces* - Go and visit him, Carver, some brilliant words.

Now, about those monkeys, frankly, I have always thought they were in league with the devil... one monkey being quite the same as the other.
