There was a gorilla.

The gorilla liked to do things, but it did not like to fight.

The gorilla liked to think things, but did not like to talk.

This gorilla preferred peace and quiet,

So peace and quiet it had.

 

One day

Peaceful and quiet

A little chimpanzee came near the gorilla’s home.

The chimpanzee liked to do things, and it liked to fight.

The chimpanzee liked to say things, and it liked to talk.

It fought with the gorilla’s little monkey neighbors

Until they liked to fight

It talked to the gorilla’s little monkey neighbors

Until they liked to talk

But the gorilla did not like to fight or talk

So peace and quiet it had –

Just a little less than before.

 

The next day

Less peaceful and less quiet

The little chimpanzee came nearer the gorilla’s home.

The chimpanzee liked to do even more things, even more fights.

The chimpanzee liked to say even more things, even more talk.

It fought with the gorilla’s little monkey friends

Until they liked to fight

It talked to the gorilla’s little monkey friends

Until they liked to talk

But the gorilla did not like to fight or talk

So peace and quiet it had –

Just a little less than before.

 

The third day

Not at all peaceful and not at all quiet

The little chimpanzee came into the gorilla’s home.

The chimpanzee liked to do everything, and fight everyone.

The chimpanzee liked to say everything, and talk to everyone.

It tried to fight with the gorilla

But the gorilla did not like to fight

It tried to talk to the gorilla

But the gorilla did not like talk

The gorilla had no more peace and quiet

So the gorilla killed the chimpanzee –

Then peace and quiet it had.

 

But the gorilla’s little monkey friends and neighbors now liked to fight

So they tried to fight with the gorilla – Violent gorilla!

And the gorilla’s little monkey friends and neighbors now liked to talk

So they tried to talk to the gorilla – Hypocrite gorilla!

But the gorilla did not like to fight or talk

And the gorilla did not want to kill the little monkeys –

I do not care about being a hypocrite

I just want peace and quiet

And you are little monkeys

And I am a gorilla.

Then peace and quiet it had.
