MONKEYS SHINED

         The keyboard monkeys, ad infinitum, may randomly type out a Shakespeare play, but publishing monkeys may well spite ‘em, printing only the pap that sells today.

         The chance of brilliance, vanishingly small, is filtered through some monkey business sense and may never make the bookshelves at all — some monkeys see only dollars and cents.

         A universe of monkey time and space might type a script, enduring and concise, which only may reach its true, valued place, if editor apes judge it worth the price.

         Eternity brings this to fruition:

         “Thank you for sending us your submission…”

MONKEYS SHINED

The keyboard monkeys, ad infinitum,

may randomly type out a Shakespeare play,

but publishing monkeys may well spite ‘em,

printing only the pap that sells today.

The chance of brilliance, vanishingly small,

is filtered through some monkey business sense

and may never make the bookshelves at all —

some monkeys see only dollars and cents.

A universe of monkey time and space

might type a script, enduring and concise,

which only may reach its true, valued place

if editor apes judge it worth the price.

Eternity brings this to fruition:

“Thank you for sending us your submission…”
