CHIMP THOUGHTS

When people say “monkey”

A chimp is what they see…

There really IS a difference–

‘Cause chimp means chimpanzee!

The kinds of monkeys far and wide

Confuse people untrained…

In nomenclature of the apes,

The chimp has been miss-named.

But then—monkeys are messy—

Even harder to train…

Whereas a chimp looks cute (?) and all,

With bigger, more willing brains!

Facial expressions of a chimp

Are similar to our kind…

He or she can smile like an imp

When directors have a mind!
