The monkey's shriek of that magnitude brought back a drowned feeling
The feeling of wonder and fascination with nature
In an undisturbed surrounding, I sat and stared
At the sharp teeth, the muscles twitching,
At the anger at the dogs below the tree, impatient.
Its every move made the branches fall on its hopeful perpetrators,
Annoying them further still.
I walked away from the scene with the shrieks fading into the distance.
After all, we humans know who the smarter one is.
And who would prove victorious in the battle.
