Transmigrated Monkey-man


World and Time, you monkeyed
Me into a decrepit and cold-moneyed
Ape –
How, transmigrated old babe,

I grow distantly hard as a nail
And thereby hangs the tail-end of my tale:
Fate –
Hangs me upon a use-by date;

World! I grimace you goodbye!
Now as I lay me down to infinitely die,
Time –
Monkey me not into another hateful clime.
