Monkeys In Trees

“Keep to your tree,” warned the one monkey to the other. “This is my tree, that is your tree, we don’t need anything more.”

“But we do!” cried the other monkey, hands in the air. “Oh we do need more, I need more than my tree and you need more than yours!”

“Don’t be absurd,” said the first money to the second. “Why would I need more than this tree. Leaves keep me cool in summer, hollows to hide in come cold and fruit to be eaten all year!”

“But we do, we do!” cried the second. “Can you not see? We need others, other monkeys, not just our trees.”
