Men and chimps : the men excelling over the chimps

Add caption
In village far on Afric’s soil,
All men and chimps do work and toil:
They climbed the trees and plucked the fruits
And sought the herbs with potent roots.
They chattered low and chattered strong,
For life was merry then and long.


Manpanzee, Chuman, Humanzee: an offspring of the men and the chimps

Cute lazing lure of lunar lore,
Hampered no hearts with hedges yore.
Sweet toiling time for climbing trees,
Did linger long in soft cool breeze.
Rare time   of knowledge came like noon,


Chimp and Man in Love

For men were tired of the croon.
“My friends we live you here and now,
We go way down the soil to plough,
This lazing time at idle spray,
Will make us sheep to bleat and bray”
The men came down to till the earth,
But left the chimps in their trees’ mirth.
In village far in Afric’s time,
Fair chimps still swing in jolly clime.
While humans toil the soil for food,
The chimps jeer them with riling rude
