Elephant And Pugs


Along the streets Big Elephant was led,
To show him off, most likely.
Since Elephants are not a common thing to see
A crowd of gapers followed on his heels.
All of a sudden Pug springs up in front of them.
And seeing Elephant, it raises a great rumpus,
It lunges, barks and howls
And does its best to pick a quarrel.
‘Hey neighbor, stop the fuss,’
A mutt intones, ‘You? Deal with Elephant?
Look at you barking yourself hoarse, and he just strolls
Nonplussed
And doesn’t care one bit about your noise.’
‘Ho ho!’ Pug says,
‘That’s just what I enjoy,
Since I can be a real tough guy
Without a single blow or bruise.
That way, the other dogs will say:
‘To bark at Elephant this Pug
Must be a real strong mug!’
