Friday Fictioneers – The Elegitibra

I have the trunk of an elephant

To scratch my back when it itches

And the stripes of a stately zebra

On the back of my furry britches

I have the stripes of a tiger

As never seen in the wide savannah

And the neck of a gentle giraffe

To reach the highest banana

You may laugh at me when you look

But I beg you sir, look closer

It would be to your detriment

To write me off as a poser

For who can reach as far below

Or as high in the trees as I?

Who can fight like a tiger

Or give you a kick in the eye?

A note

Yes I cheated a little. I wrote a poem. He just looked like he would speak in rhyme.

Don’t judge me!
