The Grand Old Duke of York He Had 10,000 Men

Surprising, Stupefying, Sensational!

Surprising, Stupefying, Sensational!

AnElephantCant quite believe it
He isn’t too great at networking
But to his surprise
Despite his cunning disguise
Not everyone thinks he’s a turkey

AnElephant has reached a great landmark
He wants to share this moment with his fans
OK that is a laugh
He is just being daft
But his visitors are now more than Ten Thousand

When he starts writing this rhubarb last summer
He has no idea what he is doing
For the first 6 or 8 weeks
He gets 2 or 3 peeks
Then the readers start happily accruing

Among his first loyal followers is Meme
Whom AnElephant since then loves dearly
And lovely Christina
The beautiful dreamer
And good ol’ Alastair who is always so cheery

Now he does not want to mention the others
He prefers not to cause a distraction
He realises his words
Are borderline absurd
And Phil’s art is the major attraction

Other artists occasionally guest star*
And add some class to AnElephant’s dire lines
Whatever the reason
You guys comes and you sees him
He thanks each one of you who enjoy really bad rhymes

*Friends of AnElephant include:
Canadian artist Carolina Sartor
and
Emma, aged 11, the prettiest girl in the USA

About AnElephantCant

    Wowy Kazawy!
    Never underestimate
    The power of wee rhymes
    and a couple of couplets
    We all have a grand time
    ‘Cause you’re so funny.

    What a massively great spark
    To have reached this landmark
    You think you are daft
    But you make people laugh
    And I think you are a good lark

    AnElephant goes to all ends
    Of the earth to show his friends
    He has a shining wit
    To go with the comedic skit
    That are going to start all the trends

    Well don on this landmark, With the humour in your posts, it’s hardly surprising. Thanks for the shout out as well 😉
