Monkey Business


"So God created man in his own image…." Genesis 1:27

The monkeys one day had a big jamboree.
Their leader sat up in the tallest tree.
And said with a chuckle,"My good fellow Monk,
If you want a good laugh, just give ear to this junk.
Some teachers of men in a place called ‘school’
Are training each youngster to grow up a fool.
The kids run wild and never get spanked.
If our babies did that, their tails would be yanked.

No well-mannered monkey dictates his elder,
Beats up the policeman or shoots at the teacher,
Poisons the baby, or kills with a gun,
And then laughs and says: ‘We are just having fun!’

Monkeys, my friends, have respect for each other.
We hand out no sass to our father or mother.
The picture I’ve painted you’ll agree is quite sad.
But listen, my brothers, I’m boiling mad.

For here’s what they’re taught- that miserable flunky,
That creature called man, was at one time a monkey!
An ape just like us, and what’s more, if you please,
He claims that at one time he swung through the trees.

Fellow monkeys, I think this is going too far.
We don’t envy their home, their wealth, or their car.
But when they will spread such a horrible rumor,
It’s time for all monkeys to lose their good humor.

So, come, you must help me prepare a big sign,
Protesting that man’s no descent of mine.
If evolution be true, then boys, we are sunk;
For I’d sooner be father to weasel or skunk."

No, my friend, man was originally created good-in God’s
image: but because of sin, his history has been that of
"devolution rather than evolution.
