The Monkey and the Smoke EP
by Caroline Ty
The title is an allusion to the La Fontaine's fable, "The Monkey and the Cat", where the cat gets nothing for its pains for helping the monkey to pull chestnuts from a fire. The moral tale highlights those careless of the suffering of others in fulfilling their ambition and how people shamelessly use one another. It refers to those who are being trampled in tight economic times and all those who trample on your heart when love becomes scarce.
