Sulky so-and-sos, gorillas, aren't they?
If you ever pass one, hunched on crossed legs,
don't try and pass the time of day.
Smile, and he'll scowl back.
Grin, and he'll glare back.
Wave, and he'll shrug back.
Leave, and he'll hurl a banana at your back.
At least they don't go in for tomatoes
or raw eggs.
