Republic of Red Monkeys a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

Republic of Red Monkeys


In the Republic of the Red Monkeys, one Monkey builds houses, roads, hospitals and schools, but thousands are willing to destroy the whole constructions.

From the days of our father, Adam up to the modern days after the nights of Scheherazade; all the Monkeys are fighting for gold, onyx, and emeralds.

The hoopoe fed the situation and migrated away with the other migratory birds.

It flew to the direction of the blue of the sky and the sea.

He arrived at his new field and slept next to flowers.
Finally, the hoopoe wakes up flapping its
 wings and singing melodies of melancholy of songs of wars and anguish.
