Retour au sommaire de poésie



Once there was an elephant

Who tried tu use the telephant -

No ! No! I mean an elephone

Who tried tu use the telephone -

(Dear me ! I am not certain quite

That even now I've got it right)

Howe'er it was, he got his trunk

Entangled in the telephunk;

The more he tried to get it free

The louder buzzed the telephee -

(I fear I'd better drop the song

Of elephop and telephong !)
