An Elegy for an Elephant

There once was an elephant beeming with pride

That went by the name "THE CRIMSON TIDE"

He bullied little animals, ripping them to shreds

tearing off their arms, and stomping on their heads.

Tigers, wildcats, and even some hogs

there was a Rebel, and a couple of dawgs

It stomped around, looking for more

until it came upon a barren swamp shore

It dipped it's head to take a little drink

then his eyes grew wide, as he began to sink.

he tried to pull from the mud and the muck

but he sank even faster, pressing his luck

"What's that?" he said and his heart began to fail

for coming through the water, was a mean GATOR tail

First there was one, then two...three..and four

licking their lips at the feast they had in store.

Tide jerked and pulled and tried to get loose

but the GATORS were fast, and it was no use

Sensing his demise, he tried to call for help,

but all that came out was a tiny little "YELP!"

The GATORS chomped him whole, even his hide,

leaving nothing behind of poor CRIMSON TIDE!

 

GO GATORS!
