Harambe
Some words written upon seeing a stuffed Squirrel in a flea market

Harambe, thou noble chimp
You gamboled in Ohio, never thinking That Cinncinatii
Rhymes with nasty!!!

Harambe, Harambe, dust now
Or did they take thy pitiful remaims
And STUFF thee??? :x

Doth thy moth eaten carcass grace the
o'weening domicile of a crooked
Democratic nabob???

Dare we hope for thy quietus?
Hast thou come to rest?

Harambe, Harambe

I am not going to post on this thread until respect and consideration for the oppressed simian population is shown.

You all have some damn nerve.

Just to nerd out a little bit on the Haiku, a traditional haiku should contain a reference to the season. Of course, saying the actual name of the season is a bit too obvious, so for example if it's springtime you might say something about cherry blossoms, or in the summer, the sound of cicadas. In the autumn something about the leaves changing color, and so on.

We'll never know in Harambe's case, will we?
The sadness flows, it rarely ebbs. :cry:

Georges Brassens – Le gorille

It was through strong iron railings
That the females of the district
Weighed up a strapping gorilla
Unworried what people will say
With no shame, these nosey women
Even goggled one precise spot
Which my mother has quite strictly
Forbidden me to mention here

Beware of the gorilla !

All at once, the tight-shut prison
In which the fine animal lived
Opens, we don’t know why (I think
They must not have closed the door right)
The ape, coming out of his cage
Said “Today’s the day I lose it”
Talking of his virginity
You have already guessed, I hope

Beware of the gorilla !

The boss of the menagerie
Shouted frantically « Good Heavens !
That’s awkward because the gorilla
Has never known female monkey".
As soon as the feminine mob
Knew that the ape was a virgin
Instead of cashing in on their luck
They ran at full speed on their pins

Beware of the gorilla

The very same ones who, just now
Were wilfully fancying him
Fled, proving that they had hardly
Any consistency of thought.
All the more vain was their fear
As gorillas are quite funky
Superior to man in embraces.
Many women will vouch for that.

Beware of the gorilla

Everyone rushes off from
The attack of the ape on heat
Except one senile lady
And a young judge standing firm.
Seeing all the girls escaping
The beast on four paws went faster
Waddling straight to the two dresses
Of the old woman and the judge.

Beware of the gorilla

« Ah » sighed the hundred year old
That I might still be desirable
Would be weird and wonderful
And, frankly quite unexpected. »
The judge expressionless thought
« For me to be deemed a she-ape
That’s completely impossible »
The next events proved him wrong.

Beware the gorilla !

Suppose one of you men might be,
As the ape was obliged to
Rape a judge or very old lady
Which would he choose of the two
Should a similar alternative
One of these days fall to me
It is the old gran, I’m convinced
Who’ll be the object of my choice.

Beware of the gorilla.

But, sadly, if the gorilla
In games of love earns his rating
We know though that he does not shine
In his taste or his intellect
So, instead of choosing the old gran
As anybody else would have done
He grabbed the judge by the ear
And dragged him into the brushwood.

Beware the gorilla

What follows would be delightful
Unfortunately, I cannot
Tell it and that’s regrettable
That would’ve made us laugh a little
For the judge, at the supreme moment
Yelled out “Mamma!” and cried a lot
Like the man whom, that very day
He had had decapitated.

Beware the gorilla!

N.B.

There is a smear campaign afoot, likely initiated by the Butt Hurt SJW Hillary Won crowd.

They are circulating this image

and inferring that Harambe was a Nazi. This is simply not true.

Thank you for your attention.

sad, first he is murdered then reviled when he can't defend himself.
