The Monkeys of the World

Heaven Born Merida and Its Destiny: The Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel. Translated and Annotated by Munro S. Edmonson (Austin: University of Texas Press, 1986), p. 76 (lines 611-618, from The Sermon of Xopan Nahuat):
Crazy are their days;
Crazy are the nights
Of the monkeys of the world.
Their necks are bent,
Their faces wrinkled,        615
Their mouths slack
In the lordship of the lands,
O fathers.
