AnElephant is Distressed at Eye Test Request

Is it a sausage? by Phil Burns

Is it a sausage? by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant even spell aquarium
The fancy tank thing that some folk keep a wee fishy in
But that is a red herring
Has absolutely no bearing
On this post he only says it for a rhyme for optician

Because AnElephant wants to talk about eye tests
For animals and reptiles and insects and birds
He thinks it is hard
Tries to be on his guard
Because not all beasties can read lovely letters or wondrous words

Just think about a waggy tailed doggy
He understands sit and fetch and instructions like that
To check his eyesight
And his bark not his bite
You just show him graded pictures of a cheeky smiling cat

Some creatures are more difficult to determine
What they see if they don’t make a slight sound
For example a mole
Do you dig a deep hole
And ask him to read his eye chart underground

And who will examine an excitable alligator
And tell him he gets it wrong without feeling fears
Will you disagree
If he thinks a b is a d
And end up crying crocodile tears

AnElephant looks really cool in sunglasses
More Steve McQueen than a platypus or a muskrat
If you hear him talk
He has eyes like a hawk
But in actual fact he is blind as a bat
