Back To The Jungle

He didn't like it in the big city.
His forte was swinging from the trees.
He didn't find city woman pretty.
A female ape suited him perfectly.
He didn't like going to Safeway for his banana's.
In the jungle they hung nicely from the tree.
In the city they ask him to pay for them?
In the jungle they were free.
Late one night some bad guys tried to rob him,
but he wore no clothing you see.
He wore no pants, had no pockets full of money,
so they stole his dignity.
Tomorrow he's going back to the jungle.
In the city he doesn't fit in.
In the jungle he can live like king kong.
Tarzan tried to warn him.

Surely, James, a little part of all of us still longs to be immersed in Nature, living in harmony, in full freedom!
Very good write.
Love, Margherita
