AnElephantCant say he is happy
About Alastair’s depressing snapshot
He craves some sunshine
Six months would be fine
He must soon head for some place that’s hot
Some days are just so depressing.
Can hardly see a thing.
That must be Scotland down under all that thick cloud.
No wonder it is so green.
I can understand why it has all that stunning scenery, all those beautiful lochs.
And those great rivers, ideal for salmon fishing.
And I suppose all that mist makes the perfect environment for ghosts to walk in ancient castles.
But those clouds are still getting me down.
So dense, so heavy with rain.
Or it could even be snow.
You have to feel sorry for anything trying to live down there.
Just staring into a thick grey fog.
Waiting for the smallest chink.
But wait, is the wind starting to get stronger?
Is that a slender ray sliding through?
Back to work!
Now the photosynthesis can begin again.
After all, that is why I am here, to create and sustain life.
