A monkey, a flagpole and Russia

This poem is written in Cascade form.

************************************************************

the monkey climbed a flag pole
with a single tea bag held in its hand
exclaiming I can see Russia from here

with both feet tucked in its mouth
rising above the rabble far below
the monkey climbed a flag pole

about causes it chattered and screeched
in words most inarticulate and grand
with a single tea bag held  in its hand

at the top the monkey gazed in confusion
across a vast frozen land soon to disappear
exclaiming I can see Russia from here.

  1. While I have no problem with Palin I have no desire to watch her show. This is very cute I as well got a nice morning giggle from it!
