There they sat, on a high pedestal
considered an epitome of good virtues
Gandhi’s three monkeys they were fondly called
gifted inanely to all as preferred statues!
Tired of being good and shunning evil
one fine day they decided to go away
hatched an impudent plan so audacious
all by themselves they flew to the US of A!
City of Las Vegas their chosen destination
they wanted to make the most of their trip
the idea of casino hopping filled them with glee
suited and booted they went to the strip!
As they sat excitedly on the blackjack table
their eyes widened at the opulence around
the amount of money exchanging hands there
pleonexia running rampant totally unbound!
Uncomfortable with the vices that had a free run
all around them corruption was rife
quickly they covered their eyes, ears and mouth
see, hear, speak no evil was a better mantra for life!
