AnElephantCant tell if his readers
Have any recollection of course
But he recently amazed
Writing about Mermaids
Now he tells of the remarkable Seahorse
It is one of nature’s more bizarre creatures
Like the equally odd duck-billed platypus
AnElephantCant find a rhyme
For that previous line
So this one may prove serendipitous
It is truly a strange looking beastie
With a flute nose and a wee tail that curls
AnElephant tells you
And this is weird but true
The boys have the babies not the girls
It is part of the family Hippocampus
From the Greek words for horse and sea monster
But we have a quick conference
Decide it just isn’t monstrous
So AnElephant doesn’t have a good answer
The Romans thought they transported Neptune
The Greeks said they carried Poseidon
They were pretty big dudes
No good for food
No one had a pan they’d be fried in
In Scots mythology it is called the Pictish Elephant
Or Dragon now this may be a wild guess
Is this just senility
Could it be a possibility
Is AnElephant the Monster of Loch Ness?
Sigh, it seems to me, I could be wrong,
but to visit this blog, you must come with a song,
if not a song than one verse or two,
well it could be worse, I guess this will do!
For my comment, that is!
As always, exceedingly well done!
Great illustration too! 🙂
AnElephantCant ever be let down
On Penny he can always depend
She comments in rhyme
So his spirits climb
And the illustration is by a dear friend
AnElephantCant be serious
Is Nessie a lovely shade of pink?
There you have it, it’s not possible,
Nay it’s quite risible
To believe, to imagine, to think
AnElephant, although Pictish,
Could be the Loch Ness monster
And swim with wee fish….
What a prankster!
So very hilarious!
‘AnElephantCant be serious’
Emmy’s mots sont encore tres vrais
But this makes no sense
Qu’est-ce que tu penses
AnElephant n’est pas toujours rosé
Vraiment? Je croyais que tu etais toujours rose! Je suis sure que tu n’es pas le monstre du Loch Ness… et pas un monstre du tout.
I like the information AnElephant has given
To find all this out, you must be quite driven
I see that the gorgeous seahorse
Would never win on the racecourse
As for the origins of the Duck-Billed-Platypus
Maybe it was first seen by historian Tacitus
I’m sorry, my brain seems to have taken a nap
The comment seems to me to look quite …. rubbish
AnElephantCant quite believe it
Alastair now runs out of rhyme
He doesn’t want to offend
But the bit at the end
Makes him think that Ally should stick to mime
😀 Thanks. I was going to say “My mind seems to have gone down a bit” or “My mind seems to have run amuck” hehe
I really enjoy your whimsical poetry. Would like to showcase several on one of my Wednesday guest posts. Let me know if interested. Also can you send me bunch samples your sketches to review please. Thanks.
AnElephantCant contain his excitement
Carl thinks his rhymes hit the head on the nail
That makes a strange sound
Let’s turn it around
AnElephant sends Carl an email
This is a surprisingly informative poem. I thought it was just going to be fun, but I actually learned something.
AnElephantCant deny that he’s flattered
Slepsnor’s words come together advisingly
So he is quite happy
A right chuffed wee chappie
Except that he’s not too sure about the ‘surprisingly’!
