The story of Rama, the righteous prince,
Written ages ago by the poet Valmiki.
This is Ramayana – an ancient, epic poem,
As told by Amma to Klaka and Kiki.
Beloved prince of Ayodhya, next in line to be king;
Banished to the forest at his stepmother's behest.
Waged a war with the demon Ravana to rescue his wife
Helped by an army of monkeys in his quest.
