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.
