AnElephant and the Spokane Word

AnElephantCant leave wonderful Washington
Without a visit to the East side of the State
If truth be told
It is kinda cold
But the buildings and street art are great

The first thing that he plans to do here
Is teach the foreigners how to pronounce Spokane
So hear what he’s sayin’
It does not rhyme with pain
It surprisingly sounds just like caravan or marzipan or Kazakhstan you understand

AnElephant is now quite delighted
He goes for a stroll before dark
He is immediately lucky
Sees gooses and duckies
In the imaginatively named Riverfront Park

He ambles along in the sunshine
His ears twinkle when they hear nature’s calls
Areas of tranquillity
Bridges with suspendability
He sees the magnificent Spokane River Falls

The downtown area of the city is marvellous
Statues and street art abound
Some buildings are old
They’re a joy to behold
AnElephant wanders happily around

There is only one teeny disappointment
The Spokane Falls SkyRide is closed
He would be serious trouble
High in the sky in a bubble
He suspects he wouldn’t get on unopposed

His visit here is quite a short one
But he is totally impressed by Spokane
So much to see and to do
You must agree this is true
It is much easier to get to than Afghanistan
