Ode To A Legless Monkey named Berry

I saw this cute little fler at Noah's Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS) last weekend. Out of the blue, I got an inspiration to write a little poem for this little fler when I got back to KL. LOL! I'm no poet but I hope the rhymes are OK. ENJOY!

Meet the latest resident in NANAS named Berry

He's a two month old long tailed monkey

How he ended in NANAS is a tragic story

Read on about him while I attempt myself at poetry...

A few weeks back he was crossing the highway

with his family just like any other sunny day

Suddenly a car sped by and knocked him astray

Turning a fine sunny day into a distressed MayDay.

He was thrown into the air and landed on the ground

His mother was on the other side making screaming sound

The driver stopped and turned around

But nothing much he could do as Berry was hit badly down.

You could call Berry a lucky monkey

At the same place and the same time, came pass Mr. Raymund Wee

He saw what happened, he saw the tragedy

He offered his help and took Berry back to the sanctuary

For a tiny monkey, Berry was extremely brave

He fought for his live, and never give a bye bye wave.

But even though Berry was rescued from an early grave

His two hind legs were too damaged to be saved

So, off they went to cut of his legs

Oh I wonder how much more his frail little body could take

But his spirit no one could not break

And his will to live no one could shake

Now, He moves around by pushing his body with his arms

Kept in a cage to keep him away from harm

This little monkey does has his own charm

He's a bit shy but you could allow him to eat from your palm.

Though Berry might not be able to climb another tree

Or swing from a vine to another like in National Geography

But I hope in NANAS he will be happy

He is a true survivor, a legless monkey named Berry.
