Three monkeys and a kabob

three monkeys, hungry, peeking in a kitchen window, poetry, steven humphreys

Three monkeys

on a rooftop…

one was bold

one was shy

one would not commit

chops at what they

were cooking

it was his favorite

‘monkey kabobs’

the shy monkey

shrieked in horror

but the non committal

monkey just

covered his
