Gag That Monkey


Photo by Arindam Raha on


This monkey is first to comment on

the moderator’s obvious hairpiece,

a stranger’s clashing blouse and pants,

someone’s bad skin, crooked teeth, attitude

and all your mistakes from birth to present


This monkey always has the loudest voice,

blaring like Aunt Agnes with her foghorn comments,

complaining about the warm vichyssoise,


(Five A’s and a B?  Why the B?)

too fat too late too much too long


The monkey’s noise

is an unending stream of spam

filling your mind’s inbox,

blabbing commercials and news bites

so difficult to mute


Catch that creature!

Put it in a soundproof cell

without bananas.

Get on with

your life.
