AnElephant, Charlie Chaplin and Tarzan

a pelican playing volleyball by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant fly like a kite
And as a sailor he is all at sea
This may sound familiar
But is it much sillier
Than standing up in a hammock drinking tea

AnElephantCant get enough toothpaste
To keep his loxodontile tusks sparkly clean
They dip in Indian Ink
But does anyone think
He can blow bubbles while bouncing on a trampoline

AnElephantCant marry a seahorse
He wasn’t in Wham! with youthful George Michael
He can’t write a libretto
Or carve like Geppetto
But he can climb a tree on a unicycle

AnElephantCant read in Swahili
But he can see the writing on the wall
He keeps himself fit
By learning to knit
With all the skill of a pelican playing volleyball

AnElephantCant hypnotise buffalo
But he puts gooses in a trance with his dance
If a Siamese cat
Can wear more than one hat
Then can AnElephant win next year’s Tour de France

AnElephantCant sew on a button
So he buys a net to keep pots and jars in
He hears all the laughter
But is it really dafter
Than watching Charlie Chaplin play Tarzan

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/
