Khi khii khiii

Went out to market
Had things to buy
changes were there
Dazzled my eye


Pig was running dairy farm
grunting, grumping
full of seethe
No milk said he
As Ms. Cow was on maternity


My next stop was the grocery store
Old sly fox was at the door
No credit allowed
grunted he
I was pushed out
Couldn't even say hi.


Thus empty handed
I strolled on,
watched the traffic
flowing through,
Hippos and hyenas
riding bikes
crocs were driving bus (crocodile)
and autorickshaws


How come this world
has become so wild
I was thinking
when I saw this child,
who shrieked with joy,
called me near
and this is what
I had to hear.
Monkey, monkey,
monkey with a tail
The kid had spotted
the monkey without fail.


My world was shattered
I ran up the nearest tree.
Alas, I was a monkey
If only I could see


I vowed to myself
as I hit the sack
I am getting this monkey
off my back.
tomorrow is another day
I will strive to be a man,
come what may...

another day came with renewed life breaths,
the monkey couldn't help but find in his heart's depths -
the knowledge that he was precious,
to those who knew him the closest.
