Poem: The Monkey

Written November 1995 when Jonathan is 16

The Monkey
by Jonathan Kraft

The monkey
The chatterbox
The yelper of the jungle
Guardian of the tree tops.

I wonder what it is
that you want. For your actions
show me you want something.
Yet I know that you have already,
or can get, everything you need.

Is there nothing that you need?
Can you get all you want?
I wish I could do the same.
I wish I knew what I wanted.
