AnElephant Makes the World Go Round

Camels - nothing like Elephants

Camels – nothing like Elephants

AnElephantCant claim he’s been everywhere
This world is an enormous place
But he gathers his thoughts
Remembers one or two spots
Where it’s best if he does not show his face

He has family all over the US
Here’s a niece and her son up in Oregon
She carries him on her back
Like he is a knapsack
These are pachyderms you can write a whole story on

He says g’day mate to his cousin in Australia
And has a snap taken with him
And what do you think
He is chubby and pink
And his didgeridoo keeps the rhythm

AnElephant and an Oz Elephant

He goes to France to bonjour his nephew
Who is really un très charmant guy
As if that’s not enough
When he struts his stuff
He is top dog in Le Vieux Port de Marseille

UnElephant a Marseille

It is strange that back home in Scotland
It is colour that AnElephant lacks
There’s much he can take part in
While wearing the tartan
Yet his image is all greys and blacks

There is of course a point to these rambles
Even if he travels ten thousand miles
He seeks no acclaim
Treats everyone the same
And is rewarded with hugs and big smiles

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/

    Great title ! AnElephantCan
    Make the world go round…
    Ou le porter sur son dos
    Car il est les 4 piliers du monde
    Il est dans les nuages et l’eau
    Mais surtout il est sublime
    Dans ses loxodonteuses rimes
    Qui enchantent tout enfant.

    AnElephant is certainly well travelled
    Of that there are no ifs and buts
    And there is no dilemma
    That picture by Emma
    Is brilliant and even includes nuts
