I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Dancing Black Monkey
Dancing Black Monkey

Dance you monkey

Dance

Dance at the stupid songs and tunes

Dance you stupid monkey dance

Else you will get a whopping from massa’s broom.

Move like MJ monkey move

Move monkey move into groove

You know I like it when my little black monkey dance

Here is a banana, do a head stance

Hoo hoo ha ha listen the monkey sing

As he dances to the rhythm

Hey black monkey why did you stop dancing

Don’t you hear the musical tone still going?

Where did my dancing black monkey swing off to?

Doesn’t he know he belongs to me?

It is like he forgotten.

Come back dancing monkey

Come dance to the tunes

Come back dancing monkey

Its 1832.

      This one is different like he lost his way and she is searching for him.

      Hoping he can find his way back.

      Well it kept at me. I thought at first this was a political type satire on slavery. The gorilla instead of a monkey could be an accident or is it saying that racism is the King Kong in the room.

      But probably this is all about the little monkey playing with the organ.

      Clive, this is a cute, but interesting poem. I enjoyed very much and I do hope the little black monkey comes home soon :)

      It's like you had a monkey on a string

      Maybe this monkey doesn't like to sing

      But a banana he really likes

      So if you treat him right, he'll give you two or three bites

      Cheers

      This is a wild poem about the dancing monkey who apparently was uncooperative.
