100 Monkeys

A hundred monkeys

washing their sweet potatoes

in a stream,

had realised

how good their lives were,

they were living the dream.

A hundred sweet potatoes

being washed in the stream

didn’t realise their imminent situation,

they had been living in a dream,

and would soon wake up.

One stream,

having one hundred sweet potatoes

washed in it

by a hundred monkeys,

considered the way

that the world had changed.

Yet, the stream continued to flow,

and the soil from a hundred sweet potatoes

was washed away,

and the monkeys moved away

to eat their fare,

and the stream returned

to its dream of flowing here

and flowing there.
