Speechless in Seattle

space needleAnElephantCant settle in Seattle
Though he does find himself in fine fettle
He has a wee wander
And then a wee ponder
Do they call it a kettle or perhaps a keattle

AnElephantCant control his behaviour
Can it be that he becomes even amazier
He strolls in the rain
Hoping to spot Niles Crane
Imagine his excitement if he stumbles upon Frasier

AnElephant is impressed now by Washington
The Pacific North West State not the one in DC
Named after the guy
Who can’t tell a lie
AnElephant knows that is not always easy

The clouds are low the rain is so heavy
So he decides not to ascend the Space Needle
He finds it quite risible
The city is invisible
The locals say that is normal indeedle

AnElephant finds one thing enthralling
He stares into the sky the whole night
He is not being cheeky
You know what he is seeking
He hopes to see a Seattellite

AnElephant runs low on finances
This does not infringe on his enjoyment
He now takes the chance
To earn a few cents
He finds himself part-time employment

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/

    High upon AnElephantCant’s back
    In a basket I swing and I sway
    With a few frights I’m seeing the sights
    And never is there a delay
    What is best (don’t tell all the rest)
    AnElephantCant is paying the way

    Emmy wants to know
    Can AnElephant skeedaddle
    In Seattle
    Or just dawdle and doodle?

    AnElephant could always fill his purse
    By entertaining clubs with his verse
    Along with the money
    He may find a honey
    Only the uneducated are the ones who would be terse

    Can’t decide which I like more, re: the written word! It’s a toss up between “Indeedle” and “Seattelite”. Great fun! Love the shots of the space needle and your car wash too. Just too cool! 🙂
