An elephant fell out of bed And got a huge bruise on his head He climbed back in his bunk Then rubbed his aching trunk… Best sleep in the low bunk instead! 08-25-17

Jan, thanks for being here!!! Elephants used to be somewhat cool (although I could never understand them), but our elephant in chief has changed all that.

ha ha ha he sure is a Dumbo - I bet folks wish he WAS pushed out from the top bunk and couldn't crawl back up the ladder! I hadn't thought of a political slant to my poem and now you have made me giggle:-) hugs jan xx

This is really funny Jan. I missed this one somehow. My computer has been screwing up all week. Right now all my reply boxes are open. Confusing! It's not easy being me! Anyway I really like this one. Good Job!! 80) pat

- I have always had sympathy for Dumbo the elephant, Jan - It's absolutely true ... I almost get tears in my eyes :) - ... he's always been bullied ... he's the sweetest elephant of the worth !!! :) - I agree with Tim :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)
