I drew a little stickman

Sitting in a tree

Holding a banana

And my friend said “Chimpanzee.”

I made the stickman hairier

And made his muscles big

And made his nose look stubby

And my friend said “Chimpanzee?”

I made stickman hold a lady

And stand on a skyscraper

And the light in my friend’s eyes turned on

And he said “Big chimpanzee.”

Then I pointed at the picture

And gestured for a while,

Drew the same picture again

And my friend began to smile

And as the sand fell from the timer

He sat up straight and tall

And said “That is Godzilla,”

So I threw him through a wall.

Politically Correct Case Study

They keep making King Kong movies

And they keep casting giant apes

To play the King in question.

That seems like sour grapes!

Why not cast a human

Or a donkey or a skunk?

Why must Kong be royalty

Instead of just a common punk?

Why must the ape be male

And violent and dark-furred?

Has diversity to the producers’

Shallow minds ever have occurred?

I think the next King Kong film

Should be about a lady bird.

If you don’t agree you’re evil

And we need to have a word.
