Monkey businesses?

Note: Linked to the current financial crisis

Nutty Monkey Business (2002)

1.   Some tribes catch monkeys

Using a nut business contraption.

Other tribes use a banana’s contraption.

A sturdy box is firmly planted in the ground

With a nut or banana inside.

 

A hole is made large enough to let in the monkey hand

And small enough for a clenched fist out on the goody.

 

2.   Survival is a chance happening

Favoring the cowards or close,

Until we learn a few dangers

By trial and error.

 

Apparently, greed is one danger

We are not fit to learn to relinquish,

Monkey or no monkey.
