If I Were An Elephant

If I were an elephant I know just what I'd do I'd pack my trunk with all my junk And move far from the zoo I'd bring with me my monkey Best friend and sidekick Preston If memory correctly serves me He's a whiz at giving directions Cause I'd like to move to Timbuktu Either that or Kathmandu One thing is clear as long as it's not here Any old place will do I'd then open up a doughnut shop Run by Preston the monkey and me Where we would toss sprinkles on top With banana creme in-between We'd be known far and wide for our doughnut delights Oh and fancy schmancy eclairs too Yes if I were an elephant That's exactly what I would do Wouldn't you? 12/10/16

If I had a magic wand, I'd turn you in to an elephant - sounds like a wonderful light. Loved your great poetry. Preston????
