Poem of the Week 13

Eletelephony

Laura Elizabeth Richards

 

Once there was an elephant,

Who tried to use the telephhant –

No! No! I mean an elephone

Who tried to use the telephone –

(Dear me! I am not certain quite

That even now I’ve got it right.)

How’er it was, he got his trunk

Entangled in the telephunk;

The more he tried to get it free,

The louder buzzed the telephee –

(I fear I’d better drop the song

Of elephop and telephong!)
