AnElephant Mastodon Something Good

The Loch Ness Elephant

The Loch Ness Elephant

AnElephantCant deny he is ancient
That thought does not make him euphoric
He may have the odd wrinkle
But his eye has a wee twinkle
He refuses to be prehistoric

He plans to tell no mammoth fibs here
In fact he intends to be purely factual
He talks for a while
About a flying reptile
Which you probably call a pterodactyl

There are ups and downs in life as a caveman
He has to keep well clear of Tyrannosaurus Rex
With only a club
He catches the whole family’s grub
But at least he doesn’t pay Income Tax

In times gone by there are Sabre Tooth Pigeons
Or is it Tigers that keep trying to gnaw us
There are Raptors galore
To tear cave dudes to gore
And the one-eyed DoYouThinkHeSawUs

Neanderthal Man is so strong but quite dumb
He has not yet invented the phone
He is very brave
And lives in a cave
Not a nice house like TV’s Fred Flintstone

Now here is one fact you should know about Scotland
You are always a most welcome guest
We won’t make you eat haggis
We are not big braggers
But the last dinosaur still lives in Loch Ness

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/

    I think Nessie is real, but then I believe in tooth fairies too (after a fashion). I’m playing catch up today with your posts. Haven’t been visiting as much as I should. 🙂

    Fun read. I think I might have met a modern relation of the DoYouThinkHeSawUs when a NoSeeUm bit me a few years back.

    Comme je crois aux farfadets
    Aux sirènes et aux licornes
    Un jour peut être je verrai
    Nessie jouer dans son Loch
    Si je rencontre un Ecossais.

    AnElephant gives us a good lesson
    On dinosaurs throughout history
    But I can’t even guess
    Of the beast of Loch Ness
    Whether it is real to me is a mystery

      Oh, Nessie is real. I live by the loch but sadly have not yet seen her, even though I had to travel 18 miles along it every day for school. (A long time ago! )
