The elephant and seesaw really tried,
Oh why, he said, will you not work for me?
A mouse then climbed up to the other side,
I'll help, he said, you wait, we'll play, you'll see.
The mouse sat down and thought of heavy things,
Like trains but not a see or saw was seen.
Two mice then came to play with cheesy grins,
But happiness, it was, a short-lived dream.
The elephant and mice looked really glum,
Until, that was, the mouse's cousin played,
Up with the mice he sat hoping for fun...
And yes, oh yes, they saw the seesaw sway!!
The day the elephant needed the mouse,
Was when they played with... Hippopotamouse!
Hey Mr D. You know what I think about this but I'll go on record and say that I like this style of yours the best (humorous and silly) and in sonnet form it's fantastic. It reminds me of one of your old ones ... can't remember exactly how it went, but there were birds doing a little ditty and one fell off its perch?
Really well done! :-) xx
