M is for Monkey

See this and more of my work at my etsy shop here!

The Monkey 

By Shel Silverstein

1 little monkey
Was goin’ 2 the store
When he saw a banana 3
He’d never climbed be4.
By 5 o’clock that evenin’
He was 6 with a stomach ache
‘Cause 7 green bananas
Was what that monkey 8.

By 9 o’clock that evenin’
That monkey was quite ill,
So 10 we called the doctor
Who was 11 on the hill.
The doctor said, “You’re almost dead.
Don’t eat green bananas no more.”
The sick little monkey groaned and said,
“But that’s what I 1-2 the 3-4.”

Who didn't read Shel Silverstein as a kid? What a poet! To this day I'm put in my place when I remember "Prayer of the selfish child". There isn't even a reprimand in that poem, but STILL teaches a kid a lesson. At least this kid!
