Little Monkeys

Welcome to story time!
I turned the Sensational Haiku Wednesday prompt (dare) into a fun story today! My seven year old liked it =)

Little Monkeys

Five little monkeys
Take a shortcut home from school
Have to cross a creek

One dares to jump it
Misses edge and floats away
Four little monkeys


Now it’s getting late
One dares to swing across it
But the vine breaks off

Three little monkeys
Have to get home for dinner
One dares to swim it

Current is too strong
Only two little monkeys
Look at each other

“Now what do we do?”
“I’ll race you back the long way.”
So they start to run

They reach home and laugh
at dripping, soggy siblings
Smart little monkeys
