Al Dover the World

Dover Castle, front and rear views from Alastair's

Dover Castle, front and rear views from Alastair’s

AnElephantCant stay hidden for ever
Sometimes he has to break cover
He does not do things by half
So just for a laugh
He travels 500 miles to visit Alastair in Dover

Now Al is a popular blogger
He writes poetry and all sorts of stuff
A weekly Fictioneers story
And what is more he
Runs a Photo Fiction Challenge he must be out of puff

AnElephant gets the sleeper from Glasgow
And a coach from London to the coast
Al meets him there
So the quite hirsute pair
Have breakfast bacon and eggs with some toast

Alastair and AnElephant in disguise

Alastair and AnElephant in disguise

Then they pop round to Al’s for a cuppa
It isn’t far so it is no hassle
From the back balcony
AnElephant can see
Wartime tunnels underneath Dover Castle

From the front they look over the harbour
The clouds are low the sea and sky grey
They chat for a while
A handshake a smile
AnElephant must be on his way

He makes one more visit in Englandshire
To dear friends who make his old heart dance
Guess how he must feel
About a weekend in Deal
With Leanne & co before crossing to France

    When AnElephant comes to Medville
    He must bring his trunk(s) to the beach
    A disguise is totally futile.
    Amble down with a smile
    In the sun life is a peach.

    How fun. To meet the person and greet the face behind the screen of technology, up close and personal. Sorry it was of such short duration for the two of you, though! 🙂 xo

    If only we could do this more often. Alas, I can’t, I live in a galaxy far, far away.

    When AnElephant came to visit me in Dover.


  17. Alastair says:

    I am glad AnElephant came for a visit
    It was good to see you in Dover
    But time did advance
    You had to go to France
    You simply took of the D and you were Over*

    *What is the easiest way to get to France from Dover?
    Take off the D and your Over


  18. This was wonderful!! Looks like you had a great time. I loved the picture; so great to see you both. 🙂


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
