If a bonobo could speak
What would it do with its credit cards
Drivers license
Proof of Insurance and
That first fall after buying a new smart phone
Would a Bonobo shove its phone and wallet into one pocket and
It’s keys into another
Hoping that it wasn’t doing permanent damage to nerves in the leg
Or its nut sack
Do bonobo’s have nut sacks that would be problematic in a pair of jeans
If it didn’t have jeans
Would a money clip be the only way to go
For a bonobo that had conquered speech
And where would it put it
A bonobo is better off where it is
Dazzling us more advanced creatures
With its mastery of signs and symbols
