AnElephantCant be famous

AnElephant outed as C. E. Ayr

AnElephant outed as C. E. Ayr

AnElephantCant stay incognito
He does not even know what that means
Or where it might be
So he treads lightly
He thinks it does not add up to a small hill of beans

You see he has been in the newspapers
He thinks he is practically famous
In the Ayrshire Post
On Scotland’s West Coast
Now almost three people know what his name is

AnElephant has a vast number of aliases
In his Ayr Academy schooldays he was known as Springer
Which is somewhat mystifying
As his given name is Brian
And he writes this book as the enigmatic C. E. Ayr

But if you think he is not very important
He tells you this feature is widely syndicated
But even he finds it hard
To rhyme Kilmarnock Standard
With Irvine Herald so he is somewhat deflated

A clever chap called Edwin Lawrence
A roving reporter with his nose to the ground
Says this is not really news
But it does quite amuse
Although nothing about AnElephant can be described as profound

Now we come to the end of this ditty
He thanks everybody who stops by for a look
All that he wants to say
Is Thank You and hey
If you click here you can see his cool book

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/

    You have no idea how long this has taken to sink in. I feel like a total dope! lol! This is much more twisted than what I could have ever imagined. Love it! (And I just thought you two were good friends that flung words at each other!) 🙂

    Och! I feel so out of place, wishing I could participate like Karin !
    All I can say is congratulations on your (hopefully way more than) fifteen minutes of fame…
    And for finally letting me know that I have not totally lost my mind…

    • AnElephantCant help writing in rhyme
      He does not do it just out of vanity
      In this little verse
      He thanks lovely Dale for her kind words
      But takes no responsibility whatsoever for her dubious sanity

    Karin is most happy for Elephant
    For she knew him in his struggling days
    Passed over for Dumbo
    Too large for Columbo
    He’s the brains despite what C.E. says

    Seriously though, this is very exciting and I hope that all three of you are celebrating the recognition. ~ k

    • AnElephantCant write limericks like Karin
      She is cleverer and much much more funny
      But he does not seek fame
      That is not the name of his game
      Peanuts are so expensive here he needs to earn money

        AnElephant must keep up his strength
        And the bestest of all that is punny
        He is such a good sport
        Could she help him import
        Canadian peanuts, they are very yummy

        **snortgiggles** aaanndd… I’m done!

    Reblogged this on Sound Bite Fiction and commented:
    AnElephantCant be the only one
    Who writes all this doggerel rhyme
    If he won’t be hushed
    I will do what I must
    And then quite happily do the time for the crime

    • AnElephantCant tell you how happy he is
      Like Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
      But no one in the world
      Is as sweet as this girl
      AnElephant adores the wonderful words of his lovely friend Nia
