The origin of no see, no hear, no speak


The tailless monkeys all soaked in the springs

No place to go; they had no wings

The water was hot; the snow was so cold

The elders would sit and stories were told

The youngsters would listen but try as they may

Theyd much rather play then learn what to say.

They covered their eyes and covered their ears

They covered their mouths and cared not to speak

But this ended up with them tired and weak.

A legend began, a lesson was taught

Old monkeys are wiser; best to listen than not.
