Age Group: Adult
Swinging branch to branch, agile, free
Monkeys grooming, community, and troops you see
Cherry glowing red, burning, smoking
Stained fingers, stained teeth, stinking
Laughing, chattering, monkeys love to play
Sitting and socializing all the day
One beer, two, then gone: “where's that case?” Smack!
Beat wife, slap child, pass out – Monkey on your back.
Author's Notes: This is what is known as a "Symbol Poem". It is where you take a symbol and describe it by letting it speak for you. They show the contrast of the dualistic sides of the symbol -- creating tension between the two views.
I wrote this poem because in our society, addictions are real and they disrupt the lives of everyone involved -- sometimes to horrible ends. As Wiccans and persons of other spiritual minds, we should remember domestic violence and the addictions people face in our prayers and ceremonies to help bring a change to the face and body of society.
