So you want to know what happened
What went down with the Crayon King
Following my coronation
That was held in the 'Stute's east wing

As you know, everything was great
Good times were being had by all
It was really just wonderful
How everyone answered the call

Pablo & Leo were in the paint
Laying down colorful pigment
In a tag-team mural contest
Against Angelo and Vincent

Justin Kase arrived Justin Thyme
As One Flew Over the main stage
And Dr. Moose cut a fine rug
When released from the go-go cage

And I just melted in my wax
Having popped up out of the cake
Candles aflame upon my head
With cream frosting, the crown to take

It was Justin Conceivable
How it managed to come about
And that our old Nurse Crachet
Failed to come running with a shout

But there was one amongst use who
Did not enjoy the party so
He coveted the crown himself
That Norman Rockwell cat named Toe

It was while on my quick trip back
To my comfy white padded cell
Where I was brewing up a new batch
Of flammable paraffin gel

That Toe's first attack came flying
An old smelly sock to my snout
Followed by his poetic words
A foul combo that knocked me out

I found myself in fitful dreams
Where I was made to slave away
Wearing a monkey suit with tie
All twenty five hours a day

They took away my color sticks
And handed me spread sheet with pen
Said "Get to work little monkey!"
"No more can you play in your pen."

"It's money you must make for us
While at the organ we do play,
Go bang some windows for our cash
No rest for you until they pay."

I banged and banged and banged away
For all the money that was due
For several weeks I banged away
Perhaps you heard the banging too.

Now maybe it was all that banging
The sound that finally made me think
Or the constant drip upon my head
From the janitor's stopped up sink

My first waking impression was
The janitor's closet from Hell
Everything was slimy and dank
With a terrible musty smell

I stumbled out into the hall
To find myself within the 'Stute
Yet what I wore was not my crown
But that of a gorilla suit!

As luck would have it, there she was
Nurse C was first upon the scene
And thinking me a real monkey
She used her tranq-gun with morphine

Who's to say how long I was out
But the next thing that I knew
Was that I woke up in a cage
At the Los Angels Zoo

So the next time you're down this way
Be sure to bring the monkey fruit
And if it is possible too
A knife for this zipperless suit

-----

A small bit of background... I work as a fundraiser for a public radio station and we just finished one of our bi-annual major events. It takes about 30 days for start to finish... not including the three months prep. Next week... Vacation! I think I'll take my daughters to the zoo.

Wow, okay I think I know what you're talking about, but that doesn't matter cause I laughed anyway. I think I saw you down there at the zoo--was that you banging the cage with your box of crayons?

Yep! That was me Martie... stole them from a kid who got to close to the bars. Unfortunately they're all broken, paper peeled off, teeth marked and dull. Can't do a damn think with 'em. Shere hell for a two pack a day colorer. Hey! You with the 64 pack.... Come here! That's right... a little closer... closer... closer...

Hillarious! Now be sure to enjoy that well deserved vacation! And don't spend the whole time writing poems, either!

I know what you mean,
I was there at the scene
when the high coronation began.

You popped from the cake,
and make no mistake,
you were quite the fine King Go-Go Man!

I think that Nurse C,
(and I'm sure you'll agree)
had a thing for the way that you popped...

With wax dripping down
from the flame of the crown,
her jaw pretty quickly soon dropped.

And all of those painters
and Justins and waiters
were impressed by your entry, for sure.

It didn't make sense, though,
that Rockwell was tense, so
I ducked behind my bedroom door!

The Cratchet, my friend,
had you poked in the end
with some wild kind of drug that's real funky.

Next Thyme, grab a brush
and we'll paint on her tush
a nightmare that looks like a monkey!

(Welcome back, Andrew my friend!)

Well my Wicked One form the East
A pretty monkey I may be
But first and foremost an artist
Not just some flying chimpanzee

Colorful Crayons are my choice
To express my artistic side
But try to glom onto this ape
And I'll watercolor your green hide

See, I just love to watch things melt
And Ms. Red Slippers is a snitch
She told me "No fire required"
Just add water for instant liquid witch

Ladies Hoot, D, Dove, Sally and Pepper... glad you all enjoyed, I aim to serve. Thanks for leaving your marks.

Same for you Sir Mark... I guess when you leave your mark... you... well you know where this is going. And so now I'm going over there.

Justin Thyme... aka Leo... As soon as I make it out of this habitat I'm catching the first plane back to the 'Stute. As for Nurse C... me thinks that Pablo already got to that tush. (Good to be back my friend)

Oh, Andrew Scott what did I do?
I promise I did not know it was you.
I'm calling now to the zoo
I will have them releasing you.
I've been wondering why
everyone's been placing crayons
on to your unslept upon bed.
I thought you were hiding again
from the monsters in the closet.

Hangin' with my primate cousins
Ten days in a gorilla suit
Until the call came from Nurse C
"Bring that moldy ape too the 'Stute!"

Well I can't say I'm not thankful
For my release came Justin Thyme
Because LuLu the chimpanzee
Was starting to look mighty fine

Now that I'm back amongst my friends
The time has come to don my crown
But first I must light a fire
And start melting these crayons down

You see, LuLu was one smart chimp
A graduate from M I T
She gave me a new formula
That brews gelatin T N T

And when I get it all mixed up
I'll find my friend Norm in his cell
Deposit a stick in his sock
And color the wall with Rockwell

Yep! That's what I think I will do
Start a new trend in object art
If Koko can sale her paintings
Than why not exploded Toe parts?

I was gonna whine that there'd been a party and I'd missed it... but I think I'm gonna breathe a sigh of relief that I missed it! LOL. Now quit being mean to that sweet Toe! LOL. You must have eaten too much crayon wax!

Ah Lady Suthern
Now don't you play coy
I saw you at the party
And it was a real joy

The painters are asking
With out being to crude
When will you come back
For one more pose in the nude

... talk about a nice frame!  They got the first one hanging in the main lobby of the 'Stute.
