The Elephant and the Giraffe

by Robert Zimmerman

Animal Opinions Contest Winner 
Giraffe was moving through the woods
While on his daily walk
He saw an elephant close by
So he just stopped to talk
He said, “What’s that thing on your face
That hangs down to the ground?”
The elephant said, “Why you care?”
Giraffe man made no sound
The elephant said, “Don’t stop now,
Continue on your trek.
Cause if you stand here long enough,
I’ll wrap it round your neck.”
Not cool to tease an elephant
Old Long Neck should have thunk
Don’t taunt a two ton Pachyderm
About his big ole’ trunk
