The Ballad Of Bob

default ©

Published: March 2009

A chimp named Bob had a fancy
For a banana tree
That lived in the jungle nearby
His love was plain to see.

Now, Bob was not the smartest chimp
To ever walk the Earth-
In fact, at two he learned to hate
And then rejoiced with mirth.

He walked to this tree every day
And picked her sweet, sweet fruit,
And when she dropped one on his head
He thought it was a hoot!

One day, so overcome with love
As he got out of bed
He said, "You're just as sweet as cake-
I'm thinking we should wed."

So on a sticky jungle day,
The two of them eloped
The turnout came to more than three-
Much better than he'd hoped.

But then around some humans came
And with some noticed strife
Walked through the forest, backs upright
And chopped down Bob's new wife.
Now Bob, oh Bob, he seemed upset
But only for awhile,
For by the next day, he forgot
And loved a crocodile.

So he was not the smartest chimp
To ever walk the land,
But, save for that banana tree,
He thought his life was grand.

Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. Cherish the moments we had together, for I promise you Dear, there time lasts forever. So when you pass by that marble placed tile, remember that God has blessed you a smile.
