AnElephantCant say he’s much good at soccer
But there is no one but himself he can blame
When he sees it in TV
He always gets kinda queasy
He considers it a totally ridiculous game
He watches a host of superbly fit young athletes
More than 20 or so at a very rough count
But if anyone breathes
Not so much as a sneeze
About half of them collapse writhing in agony on the ground
They appear to be in paroxysms of anguish
AnElephant summonses doctors and swift stretcher bearers
But jings tout de suite
They are back on their feet
These guys are better actors than Bobby de Niro
If AnElephant plays he thinks he’s a goal-scoring striker
Or perhaps he can be resolutely defending
If a chap who is fast
Decides to run past
AnElephant is just liable to delicately upend him
He reckons he is an unbeatable goalkeeper
If the ball is in the air no one can beat him in the jump
No matter how high
Even the tallest tall guy
Can never come close to out-leaping AnElephant’s trunk
But this is not really what he plans or aspires to
He always has a preference for rumbustious rucking at rugger
But when things get too rough
He quickly says enough
AnElephant is now training to be a world-class hugger
Not a fan of soccer -But – I am a fan of hugs! 😉
Oh come here, RoSy!
There we go!
You’re still the best hugger out there… even if you do step on my foot sometimes LOL 🙂
Just trying to stay close, dear Roxi!
I must say the evening is always made sweeter
when I find a post from AnElephant in my reader!
When beautiful Bailey leaves a sweet comment
AnElephant’s old heart does a whole performance
I love a world class hugger! The way to go! yay
Yay is right!
AnElephant is looking for practice partners.
I would love to practice more too 🙂 I assume an elephant hug must so huge and wonderful!
AnElephantCan be the best goalkeeper
ever because nothing gets past him
he’s too smart to be foiled or fooled
He wouldn’t crumple on a whim
he just might could upend soccer! 😉
AnElephant appreciates your comment, cherie, but fails totally to understand your rhyming sequence!
But merci, comme toujours.
Pfftt! So picky! (visualise a shrug right here).
Soccer is populated with floppy haired overpaid playboys. One of the most tedious sports known to mankind.
Hmm, so not a great fan really, AnElephant guesses, reading between the lines.
Thank you for visiting.
Was it that obvious?
uhhhhh….since I LOVE soccer…this may have caused a rift in our friendship AnElephant. Not sure where to go from here……..
I will say happy to hear AnElephant is going for world-class hugger. 🙂
You can play soccer while AnElephant cooks dinner, okay?
Then he practises hugging!
