NEW POEM - 'MONKEY OFF MY BACK'

This poem sadly didn't make the cut for my latest, forthcoming book (Jan 2020). However, it is a catchy performance piece about, well, anxiety, and I thought it deserves a bit of an airing. So here goes. Enjoy!

MONKEY OFF MY BACK

Monkey off my back!
Monkey off my back!
Gotta get the
Gotta get the
Monkey off my back!

No matter where I try to go
the monkey comes with me.
He wraps his legs around me
like he's hanging from a tree.
He throws things at my teachers
and he bellows at my friends.
I need to make him go away!
I need to make amends.

Monkey off my back!
Monkey off my back!
Gotta get the
Gotta get the
Monkey off my back!

The monkey shares a bed with me,
he has his own pyjamas.
He makes my bedroom dirty
with the skins of old bananas.
My parents kicked me out the house,
the monkey made them cross.
I’m desperate to get rid of him,
he needs to know who’s boss.

Monkey off my back!
Monkey off my back!
Gotta get the
Gotta get the
Monkey off my back!

The monkey’s getting cumbersome.
He’s really quite a weight!
He’s hairy and he’s smelly
and he makes me feel irate.
He doesn’t even let up
when I’m sitting on the loo.
My heart feels like a jungle
and my head feels like a zoo!

Monkey off my back!
Monkey off my back!
Gotta get the
Gotta get the

MONKEY OFF MY BACK!
