Monkey with a Gun


There’s nothing funny about a monkey with a gun

Even if he is well dressed and sartorial

Their shots are random and violent

They take no care for safe marksmanship

Even the happiest monkey with the best intentions

Will succumb to squeezing the trigger

Just to hear the sound of the gun and the fury

Guns are shiny and appealing to a monkey

Every year, almost one person is shot by a monkey with a gun

That person could be you if you aren’t careful

It could happen anytime just when you least expect it

Tell your friends it’s time to run

When you see a monkey with a gun
