Objections from the Coconut Tree


Listen to : Objections from the Coconut Tree


Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree,

Discussing things as they’re said to be,

Said one to the others: “Now listen, you two,

There’s a certain rumour that can’t be true:

That man descended from our noble race!

The very idea is a disgrace!



No monkey ever deserted his wife,

Starved her babies and ruined her life,

And you’ve never known a mother monk,

To leave her babies with others to bunk,

Or fuss them on from one to another,

Till they scarcely know who is their mother.



Here’s another thing a monk won’t do:

Go out at night and get in a stew,

Or use a gun, or club, or knife,

To take some other monkey’s life,

Yes man descended – the ornery cuss –

But brother, he didn’t descend from US!







Theory of Evolution

First he was amoeba beginning to begin;

Then he was a tadpole with his tail tucked in;

Then he was a monkey hanging from a tree;

Now he is a doctor with a PhD.
