See The Pyramids Across The Clyde

The Ancient Pyramids of Glasgow

The Ancient Pyramids of Glasgow

AnElephantCant understand lots of cool things
He goes to this park regularly
But on his last visit
He sees this – what is it
It isn’t something you can easily carry

It doesn’t cost a fortune to build it
It is just twelve bits of fairly cheap wood
Does it serve a purpose
Or is it really useless
It doesn’t even look all that good

It isn’t a monument or statue
It can’t be a tribute to Burns
There is so much it lacks
He examines the facts
It doesn’t do cartwheels or turns

He doesn’t think it’s a wonderful sculpture
Like beautiful David by Michelangelo
Or The Thinker by Rodin
He is filled with foreboding
Do they plan to bring culture to Glasgow

AnElephant thinks it is built by extra-terrestrials
That is little green dudes from some other planet
Or in one day The Triffids
Cos didn’t they build the Pyramids
This is rubbish he is now sorry he began it

So he has no idea what this bizarre thing is
Perhaps it is all a bad dream
But Jack doesn’t care
He says just leave it there
Stop fretting let’s go for ice cream

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/

    A thingy that’s square with four feet;
    A stool, but it’s lacking a seat?
    It’s there, in the main
    Just to boggle the brain –
    No wonder you suffered defeat!

    Is it protecting what it surrounds?
    Something planted in the ground?
    Or placed there by some wack
    {o]. Pfftt! I agree with Jack
    Go for ice cream.

    I think I find that construction Peculiar
    Besides the fact that it is made of wood
    I think you should go back
    And have a look with Jack
    To see if it really is any good
