The Red Monkey

golden-lion-tamarin

wild and free, a life dwelt in green jungles and damp air

ginger haired he stands alone

his mate is blue in her heart

not in her fur

this red one is upset and depressed

his heart is blue too

moving day came early when the hunters arrived

monkeys must survive

they go deeper

the jungle gets smaller shrinking daily

their leader has fallen

their clan is scattered , desolate

this red one remembers when days were happy

and long

when the whole world was red
