Cheeky Monkey!


entry picture

A group of middle aged ladies,

all carrying a few extra pounds,

decided to put on a drama

enthusiasm knowing no bounds.


They practiced each week at the hall,

learning their lines and each part,

eventually getting things right

after many a shaky false start.


Now, wanting to add some effects,

that were special and eye catching too,

they contacted a young technician

to see what it was he could do.


He arrived with a fog making box

and after plugging it into the wall,

he dimmed the lights for added effect

transforming the old church hall.


As the fog rolled around their feet

the young man just couldn't resist,

to say with a grin he knew the play,

"Gorillas in the Mist!"
