Baboon Chatter

There was once a baboon in a tree,

I could swear he was talking to me.

He said, “Here’s the scoop

tell all your troop,

Big party down the road, come at three.”

    • I had something more contemplative originally, but then I remembered the true spirit of baboons and went with the party limerick instead. Very glad you enjoyed it Ronnie. πŸ˜€

  1. LOL. I don’t know, though…he looks like the kind of party-goer my mother encouraged me to avoid! πŸ™‚

    • They are funny, I agree, Inese. All baboon species have a dog-like muzzle, and they have pouches in their cheeks for storing food, so that does make for a unique face. Very glad you enjoyed the baboon Inese. πŸ˜€
