Jingle Poetry Potluck Prompt: Lies, Deception and Misrepresentation!!

Monkey Cage

You take drama apart,
pull it piece by piece
like sticky monkey bread
oven-fresh goo.
This! and That! and Oh,my God!
Cinnamon temptation
so sinful, deceiving
flying sugar high
whirlybird whim.
Then splash! You crash!
Stinky muddy mess,
a monkey with no bread.

Oh, my gosh. You describe so well that monkey cage that some dwell in. This made me shake my head in recognition. Of course I don't see it in myself, only others. LOL
