Curious George: A Poem

Updated on November 27, 2013

A True Story

I was in Mexico

at a beach on the bay,

when I spotted a gal

shaking a cage.

She stood and she shook

where an ape was displayed,

only to provoke the residents rage.

High on a boulder she gripped and she rattled,

until it approached and engaged her in battle.

An arm through the wire, it gripped on her hair.

It shook her, and yanked her, and people just stared.

I was stuck there in limbo, just shocked at the scene.

Listening, bloody murder as the young blonde screamed.

He pulled her so close with the strength of ten men,

until she slipped from the rock and then him.

She got up and brushed the dust from her shirt,

stared into the cage, cigarette butts in the dirt.

This was no George ,

No curious play.

When she saw this she ran,

and she still runs to this day.

      Thanks for the comments... Ha yeah good warning just in case you randomly come across a large cage with an ape in it. Somehow I did. It was quite the experience, I must say.

      Useful. I guess that you should let sleeping apes lie.
