See No Evil

Posted on July 4, 2012


Those three ‘wise’ monkeys
were about today
Doing what they do and
looking the other way

Eyes closed to
all that went on
Unseeing and blind
to deeds did wrong

The monkey number two
closes his ears to all around
Not wishing to hear
any disturbing sounds

Monkey number three
Wouldn’t say a thing
Cat has his tongue
In all that he sees

See no evil
Hear no evil
Speak no evil
The rules of us all

You have to wonder
When did we get so cruel
You have to wonder
Why bother at all…
