Captain Monkey



Look there goes Captain Monkey.

Flying like a supersonic jet above the skyscrapers.

Exceeding the speed of sound.

Causing a sonic boom.

And breaking all the windows.


He’s a monkey.

What does he care.


And can he ever play the piano.

Like Liberace only more flamboyant.


He wears a suit of diamonds kind of like the rhinestone suits

Elvis used to wear.


Some people ask “Is he the electric monkey?”


He plays piano.


We went over this already.


Then on the news they said the murder victim had died

from trauma to the head from a blunt instrument.


I thought perhaps a piano.

Perhaps a baby grand.


That’s when they showed Captain Monkey

being led away in handcuffs.
