As I stare out of my cell at the keepers doing their rounds, I wonder
for the hundredth time or so what would have happened if I had not
left my home for a walk that morning six months ago.
I would not have been kidnapped, never to see my family again, I would
never have been thrown into this cell, three walls of which are bars a
finger’s thickness and two finger’s width apart.
I would be free to go where I want walk ; jump, run instead of being
taken for “walks” in the cement, high walled courtyard two times a day
to “stretch my legs”.
I know for a fact that one of the reasons that they have the walls
other than to stop us escaping is so that noone outside can see the
horrible mutilations that have gone on inside our walled prison.
One by one, all my companions have disappeared, and out of the fifteen
that went, only three came back. One had had his arms and legs
inverted, one has an extra hand protruding from his arm and the last

told me about the terrifying experiments the scientists did to them
and probably will do again to me.
I must escape from this cess-pit.

is topped up constantly and soon my eyesight is perfect.
There are others here, all have a large cell and a little garden. We
are surrounded by signs, there is one on each cage.
This has our details, and medicine that we need. Also we have the
amount of food that we eat on average each day.
There are signs saying things like:
“Please watch your head, steps!”
“Floors cleaned twice a day, slippery ground.”
“Please don’t put hands inside cages”(the reason they have this one is
because one of my companions grabbed a man’s arm in a plea for help,
but pulled too hard, and dislocated his shoulder)
“Do not step past the white line.”
But the one that is everywhere around the room, in big black on white,
bold writing is:
“PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS.”
