Poem 48

for W a long time ago.

The flea to the elephant says:
Catch me! Catch me!
But elephants have no time for fleas
With feet like the trees
And a trunk broad and strong
With a swing of his knee
He could sent the flea on
But the flea to the elephant says:
Catch me catch me
If  you chase me I’ll run
Up from the circus and  into the sun
Yelling catch me catch me.
But the elephant frozen refuses the tease
And lays down his trunk and his ears with great ease
And says: Catch me catch me,
Catch me you say
But all I want a little flea to do is
Hop on her way
