Marching of the Elephant


Tuesday, March 10, 2015


Here is a silly little tribute to the joys of apartment living…. Ha…. ha…. ha….


MARCHING OF THE ELEPHANT


Early in the morning, I heard a pitter-patter

A squeal of delight, followed by some laughter

I thought to myself, “What a joyous sound!”

Unaware of events that would turn things around;

So suddenly a sound like thunder began

And the ceiling shook as the creature ran…

Then thump-boom-thump all through the place

My peaceful reverie vanished without a trace;

There must be an elephant marching to and fro

With each earth-shaking step my torture grows;

At times I am granted a short-lived reprieve

A tiny bit of solace that I gladly receive;

Enjoy this moment and seize the day!

For soon enough the elephant will be back to play…
