Monkey by Fatma AlSumaiti

Monkeys in a cage
We are nothing but monkeys in a cage

Here are the keys, off to the stage
Ordered the ringmaster of the circus

I’ll lend you ropes
Four meters and a half
Any more and you’ll think you’re free

Monkeys in a cage
You are nothing but monkeys in a cage

Up on that stage, you swing and fly
Smile when ordered
Fall silent when told
Here’s a banana, now back to your cage

Monkeys in a cage
That is your stage
You will forever be monkeys in a cage
