Elephant Ride

A Tale About Nothing

On an Indian package holiday
Went Mr and Mrs Slim
And, being "the trip of a lifetime",
Took their 8 year old boy, young Tim.

They were on a Jumbo safari
When two steeds decided on fun.
Tim saw the massive organ
And, naturally, asked his mum.

"It's nothing." She said, all embarrassed,
So Tim then asked his dad.
"Ask your mum." Replied daddy.
"I've already done that!" Cried the lad.

"Mum said it was really nothing,
A trifle, unworthy and sad."
"Ah well,"replied Tim's daddy proudly,
"I guess she's just spoiled, my lad."
