Hmmm… I guess it is funny poetry time now 🙂 . In this post, I’m going to share with you a poem entitled ’My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants’. It’s about a dad who is really obsessed with Elephants and wishes it for a pet. And so, when his very birthday came… Anyway, enjoy!
My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants
My dad’s obsessed with elephants,
he wished it was his pet.
And when his birthday came, I knew
exactly what to get.
I went off to the forest, and
exploring it was fun.
I must bring home an elephant
although it weighs a ton.
I found an elephant which was
as obese as a hog.
I tied a rope around its neck
and walked it, like my dog.
At first, it wouldn’t follow me
and just would not obey.
I lured it with bananas which
then made it go my way.
At last, it was next to my house
(it almost took a day).
I fed it with a lot of fruits
and begged for it to stay.
When my dad saw the elephant,
he quickly got acquainted.
He then jumped up and down for joy;
my mother nearly fainted.
That’s one of the funny poems that are to be published in my poetry book. In fact, it was the first poem I’ve ever written in 2009!
