It was on the news today
A monkey robbed

a convenience store
in India
chucked a piece of fruit
through the open door
as a diversion 
leapt upon the
cash register 
opened it and fled
with $150 worth
of rupees
in its paw
When I relayed 
the story
to my boyfriend,
he asked,
“What’s that monkey
need the money for?”
