Monologue Mania Day# 356 by Janet S. Tiger Monologue for a Kangaroo Feb. 3, 2015

                                Monologue for a Kangaroo

           (A kangaroo hops onstage - the actor gets to choose how kangaroo-ey to be.  Looks around, hops over and peers at the audience.  Strong Australian accent)

G'day, mates.  Am very pleased to make your acquaintance.  You look surprised - what kind of accent did you expect?  Cockney?  Gimme a break!

Look, I really appreciate your Senior Channel here allowing me to speak with everyone.  I may be only ten years old, but in 'roo years, I'm like 60, so I am like a senior.  See the gray around my nostrils......

            (Leans over to illustrate)

Anyhow, I'm not here to talk about my age, I'm here to solicit all of you fine people to contact the United Nations and put international pressure on Australia to make a decision...once and for all....about kangaroos being the official marsupial of Australia.  

Now, with all the problems of the world, you're probably thinking, why should we care about this?

Well, if you don't, we kangaroos are planning a national protest where we will refuse to take cute pictures with all of you tourists.  That should hit the tourism pocketbook where it hurts!  

No more boxing with you buggers!  No more bouncing around in cute little diapers!  We are standing up for our birthright - so please write to someone, anyone, because with these little tiny fingers, we can't write anyone!

And we are thanking you for this help......

          (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Now, to get this party started, let's have the kangaroo theme song.....And thank you, Pointer Sisters!

           (Bounces off to strains of 'Jump for My Love')
