It was a tale to be told,

A saga extreme,

Of a man who’d grown old,

And lived by a stream.

It was his secret escape,

His quiet retreat.

Then he met a mountain ape,

The one with big feet.

The giant lifted him up,

So tall and so lofty

and gave him a squeeze,

you might think him a softy.

Then to break all expectations,

Bigfoot swallowed him whole,

Despite the man’s protestations

He showed no control.

But he had his final revenge

And that’s without question

He gave that poor ape

Terrible indigestion.

He was charming and handsome, yet when he invited her to his apartment amongst the rowdy throng, she felt repulsed.

His gold wedding ring glinted tellingly. No doubt it would be the old saga of a wife that doesn’t understand him.

She needed an escape, after all, he was the boss.
