Monkey Business In A Brazilian Bar

Many believe that early humans domesticated grain not to make bread
But rather to make beer and spirits instead
Even after thousands of years
Of drinking wine, spirits and ales and beer
A human with too much booze in his system is a human to sometimes fear
Too belligerent, too loud, sober humans away from him steer
In a bar in Brazil the patrons enjoying a night out another violent sot to find
Not another human but another drunken albeit still a primate kind
A monkey came in off the street
Grabbed and drank a glass of rum while on his bar stool seat
Then picked up a kitchen knife and chased the male patrons now fearful for their lives
All the while like a true gentleape left the females alone
Though they must have shaking to their very bones
Up on to the roof with his large knife trying to punch holes through so the zita bearing mosquitoes could enter and make the patrons sick
Finally firemen arrived, disarmed this drunk simian and from this bar 86ed
Scary times for the patrons but at least not a herd of pink pachyderm drunks
Sucking down large tankards of rum with their efficient thirsty trunks
