Worse than Monkeys


Our monkeys are forming a faction
Expressing the outrage they feel
And will probably take legal action
At statements they rampage and steal. 

They merely make use of whats owed them
From areas where they were first
Whence nobody has overthrowed them,
Although they have all tried their worst. 

But more than that, they are offended
By insults far worse sent their way,
Demanding apologies tendered
From those, Almost human!, who say. 

How is it you dare to compare us
With such a despicable kind?
Forthwith we insist such you spare us,
Or prompt litigation youll find!

    naughty little buggers, dread to think if they thought they had any more rights than they already assume they do!

  7. Any action they take
    Will be no mistake
    For as you say
    Back in the day
    We stole their space
    What a disgrace
    And now without shame
    It’s them we blame
