Elephants Delight



can't wait until he turns around!
I've just sneaked up besides
hope he likes my weathered look
and doesn't laugh inside

mind you I have to wonder
who dressed me up like this
as there's nothing I like better
than to roll in watery bliss

perhaps they thought this drop of rain
would harm my delicate skin
but really who were they kidding
that joke on me's worn thin

or did they think I'd blend with the crowd
romping puddles and making a splash
but who chose this outfit in brilliant yellow
I'm someone who usually cuts quite a dash

Oh! what's that I've spotted
over there on the stall
trunk licking sticky buns
plenty there for all

and once I've finished clearing
those delectable delights
the one who dressed me in yellow
will think I look a fright

and with a bit of luck
I'll be in the shower before the night
