I just read Planet of the Apes

By Pierre Boulle,

Written in 1963 originally as La Planete des Singes

And released in ‘73 as the movie with Charlton Heston

(Now deceased, gun lobbyist).


I had read it many years ago

And returned to the novel

After my recent confusion over the War for the Planet of the Apes

Which I found



The novel twists reality,

Manipulating past, future and present,


And time-travel

All coalesced

Into a hectic



The movie I found merely odd

I even

Nodded-off in the middle,

Which is never a good sign.
