Confused by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant quite believe it
It strikes him with a blow and a jolt
He is all grown up
He cannot make it stop
AnElephant is becoming an adult

So how on earth does this suddenly happen
When it is something he never expects
It applies to others
Especially fathers and mothers
But surely he is not one of the unusual suspects

He thinks he is destined to remain always a young ‘un
Does he grow up quietly in a moment of confusion
He is not much over 100
Are his days really numbered
Does he now reach an illogical conclusion

He looks back in astonishment at his lifetime
He is not sure now what became of his youth
He tells you no lies
He is somewhat surprised
He presents his story the complete and dishonest truth

This is never something he makes forward plans for
He has no words to say in his defence
He thinks very hard
He plays his last card
He applies all of his uncommon sense

He comes up with an idea that delights him
You know he is up to no bad because he is usually so good
This is his new scheme
He continues his day dream
He decides to have a second and perhaps third irresponsible childhood

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/

    Definitely no worries. An Elephant will do quite nicely with his third childhood! A bit of a “natural” if you know what I mean! 🙂 xo, Said in a loving and playful way! xo

  3. Go for it and for a 4th too. Stay young forever. It’s what’s in your heart that matters, not the years that pass! 🙂

    It sounds like a great plan…. I think I’ll take a page from your play book and do the same!
