Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay

Mystery Monkey of Tampa

Up in the vine-laced trees,
crab-crawling down a post,
climbing over a stack of firewood,
the Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay,
a wild free-wheeling creature.

Mr. Monk appears very much at home
in Pinellas County, his comfort zone.
The monkey swings from the trees
and washes his sticky hands in a stream.
He is welcome to our little piece of paradise.

I couldn’t resist the “Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay” headline.  Live free, little monkey.
