Leave It to a Lemur

Leave it to a lemur
to freeload in your mud bath
and skip out without paying the bill.

I’m tired of these lemurs
sneaking onto my property
and using the facilities
that I worked so hard
to put together.

Maybe if they pitched in
a few bucks here or there,
I wouldn’t be in such a bad mood
every time this happens.

I can’t wait until the circus
pulls out of town
and takes away these damn primates.
It’d better be soon, before these lemurs
get too comfortable around here.

I’d kick them or throw something
at them, but I already told my guru
that I’ve committed to non-violence.

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
