A different kind of primate.

Sock Monkeys

by mermaids

Soft, comforting and warm,
a primate born of the Great Depression,
who eases those feelings
of despair and stress.

Smiling at struggling humans,
surviving the decades,
gracing my bed,
a monkey created during hard times.

Dwelling in my home,
during good, bad and ugly times,
grinning through it all.

A soft toy filled
with love,
living through the ages.


Sock monkeys were made during the Great Depression as toys for children. They are still around and I imagine will be here through the ages. I have one staring at me now and grinning.
