The Mercy Of Monkeys

Monkeys Of Hope And Health Pass On Children's Minds,
They Lope With Wreaths Grinding Wheat,
They Are Owned By Sikhs Who Do Not Eat Meat,
And They Are Sent On A Fleet Carrying Leeks,
Off To Wales, With A Flag Of Gules, White And Green,
The Sikhs With The Five K's, They Have Kesh, Uncut Hair, Kangha, Which They Use To Preen, Kara, A Bracelet, Kachera, A Undergarment, And Kirpan, A Dagger,
Monkeys Of Hope And Health Jump Alive To Trick The Disobeyers Of The Sikhs.
