The Misfits: Percy And The Baboon.
Hello one and all ;well here we are following another day in the working lives of these daft Misfits.
If you would like to read the introduction in part one first then simply follow this link.
Do you know a misfit or two??
I bet you do and I can assure you that I most definitely do !!!
The characters featuring in today's story.
The Misfits had a special job
Yes to carry out today;.
They had to transport a baboon
To a Reserve very faraway.
Two employees would be needed
Yes to carry out this task;
Boss sat down and scratched his head
Which two drivers should he ask??
He decided to give it to Percy
Granville should go as well;
They were due a long journey
After the quiet Christmas spell.
They were now setting out
Feeling happy and proud;
The noise was utterly awful
As they sang out so loud.
In record time they did arrive;
At that very first address;
The birds oh so sweetly singing
Their passenger seemingly harmless.
His impressive cage almost glided
As it was loaded onto the truck.
Oh how Percy rubbed his hands
He couldn't believe his good luck!!
Percy sat so deep in thought
As Granville drove in silence.
He decided to check the Baboon
His sense of care immense.
To the Baboon he decided to sing
A song sung by Elvis Presley;
And the so enchanted Monkey
Looked at him so very dearly.
Percy sang 'Love Me Tender!!'
In a voice never called sweet.
Suddenly the Baboon swiped
Sweeping him off his feet !!!
They arrived at the Nature Reserve
With plenty of time to spare;
Granville wondered where Percy was
He slowly began to care !!!
The doors of the truck were opened
But what a wondrous sight to see;
Percy sat there in a very tight grip;
Singing on the Baboon's knee.
Two very large male keepers
Rescued Percy from his plight;
But all his clothes were in tatters
Oh he looked such a strange sight!!
His cap worn by the Baboon
On his shirt he wiped his nose.
Poor Percy broke down in tears
In his not so very gracious pose.
By the time they returned to the office
Everyone had heard the story
Of how Percy had ended his day
Sat on the Monkey's knee.
Percy never ever again sang
Another Elvis Presley song.
And had so many nightmares
That lasted all night long.
