Love is a Many Splintered Thing

AnElephantCant help sometimes wondering
About the sort of lady to whom he might be attracted
Elegant and tall
Or pretty but small
It’s hard to tell because he is easily distracted

He imagines her being dark and sultry
With hair that’s the colour of a raven
But without affectation
And obviously patient
Because AnElephant will be always misbehaving

Will she have legs like a giraffe or a springbok
Or be hairy and short like a dwarf
Maybe an hour-glass figure
Or like a beach ball but bigger
Or like Kafka’s beetle will she just metamorph

Perhaps her face will be quite a challenge
With a carrot in place of a nose
Ears like a yacht’s sails
Like the poor Prince of Wales
And will she have webbing between all her toes

They say the eyes are what make the big difference
So he will look but bear this in mind
They may be blue or green
That remains to be seen
But AnElephant is quite colour blind

Will she be like the tan Girl from Ipanema
Whose walk makes the chaps all go aaah
Will she samba along
Like that girl in the song
Or will she hobble with a gait quite bizarre

It might help if she can do magic
Like a fairy with a spell-casting wand
Or even less usual
But not necessarily crucial
Will AnElephant’s new love be a blonde

But let’s forget all these things that she might be
And think what she must be instead
She will have to be clever
And love him forever
And have a trunk that will turn any guy’s head

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues.

    AnElephant can be like the Pied Piper
    When it comes to the fairer sex.
    He can bring us to our knees
    And do with us what he please
    When his mind and his muscles he does flex.

  3. I just love my visits here and am so impressed with Meme for putting that clever link on her blog.
    You are all so clever with your rhymes, I just have to try …….

    Anelephantcant really be choosy
    When thinking of who’ll be his floozy.
    There’s a lady of charm
    With an outstretched arm
    And she sings for you, sometimes bluesy.

    • If you mean me and Meme
      It is quite sad but she she
      Already has another he he
      So there is no place for me me

      But howzabout if we three
      You and me and Meme
      You know just maybe
      If we three were free
      And your he would agree
      Have a wee cup of tea

      AnElephantCant deny that he just loves it when wonderful talented ladies (and the occasional chap) come to his zoo and rhyme for fun – thank you

    She has to be cute and clever
    Cause if she’s ugly
    AnElephantCant won’t see her
    But is she is funny
    It might not matter
    ‘Cause he’ll hear her.
    And that might be just the magic
    To make him freak.
    Or not.

    AnElephantcant comprehend
    the nature of the fair sex
    we are hard to please
    to toy with and tease
    And we also know how to hex!
    (Life’s tough all over, but I do agree with Meme!)

    AnElephantCant’s criteria
    Is enough to cause deliria
    He better hurry up and choose her
    Or is surely bound to lose her

    AnElephantCant’s deliria
    Causes angast over criteria
    Surely he will confuse her
    But no doubt also amuse her

    AnElephant can only deserve
    One who may or may not be a perv

    But I think she’ll definitely be a queen
    Who with him she’ll be happily seen
