Easy Like a Monkey
I like things that come easily,
Like foreign language and poetry.
But I don’t mean lacking in difficulty,
Just unhindered and flowing free.
Like a monkey swinging from tree to tree:
That’s taxing, but comes to him naturally.
Language and rhythm and flow: those three.
I am their monkey, they’re home to me.
