Here’s to a Leaping 2016! =)

Here’s to a Leaping 2016! =)
Time to shear the year of the sheep Pick new chatter on the apevine Lessons to toss and lessons to keep Some that hurt and some benign But as we swing to a newer tree Let's take a chimp off the old block— It's often the last of a set of keys That manages to open a given lock This obstinacy is one such skill Seen of 'Hanuman' or 'Sun Wukong' Our prime mates with the force of will Who've shown us how to brave a wrong If you're nursing some sticky scars Remember it's been wisely said: Life is a bit like monkey bars— We must let go to move ahead Don't slip on God's banana skin As "monkey's uncle" (or his chum) There are two flavours on life's tin: Yum and Yuck; may yours be Yum. ======================================= Here's to a leaping 2016, the year of monkey, for you and your loved ones! =======================================
