Razzmatazz at Alcatraz

bridge

AnElephantCant contain his excitement
He packs his wooden leg and spare dentures
He is flying away
For a month and a day
On a mammoth trans-Atlantic adventure

He is going to San Francisco
He is sure to wear flowers in his hair
This may mean his posts
Are insubstantial as ghosts
But he tells you what happens over there – if you care

The long Scottish winters depress him
He suffers badly in the damp and the cold
He just cannot wait
To see the Golden Gate
And in a little cable car climb halfway to the stars before he’s too old

He might even find new inspiration
And produce a few literary pearls
And if things go well
You never can tell
With luck he just might meet Californian
With luck he just might meet Californian
With luck he just might meet Californian girls

AnElephantCant pretend he is wealthy
He may huddle in hovels and stay in straw huts
But he wants you to know
He will miss you and so
He says so long and thanks for all the peanuts

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. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    Meme came to this page
    AnElephantCant to engage
    Because she thinks him so sage
    She looked all around no elephant found
    He’s flown to California from his cage

    Chasing girls tall and tan
    If AnElephantCant can
    Might seem to be a wise plan
    But before making eyes Meme does advise
    He remember he’s not a young man

    Bon voyage mon ami.
    But skip the hovels,
    Try some hotels
    Don’t forget the Squat and Gobble
    I’m sure your mind will boggle.

    Well, I hope you enjoy your time there,
    Don’t mind me, I’m just a bit jealous 😉

    I hope you have a great time while you’re over there
