Elephant & Ant... ( contd.)

Written for LOL Prompt : Age

And the Tale Continues..

Elephant & Ant...

Before marrying Auntie Ant
Our dear hero Elephant

Had fallen for a (FR) Female- Rat
Oh, don’t ask how could be that

Shocked to see the monolith
FR thought it really fit

To talk before taking the bait
So happily agreed for a date

Settling for a cup of tea together
Looking charming in a blue sweater

She wondered how he could be so huge
Elephant oblivious was pretty enthused

Then directing on his face her gaze
She asked him, ‘Hey, what’s your age?”

Elephant blushed and said, ‘Oh dear,
This December, I will be one year

‘Shouldn’t be asking, that’s true
But hey, tell me, how old are you?”

“Me, too,” she gathered courage to tell,
“But right from birth not keeping well.”

Little awkward, she glanced here and there
But Elephant was already looking elsewhere

Up above on edge of Sugar Bowl so high
Moving swiftly, an Ant had caught his eye…

Rest as you know is history….......


  1. shy of revealing age, wanting to be youth forever.. wooh life completes it's full cycle.

  2. Pyaara Dost,
    The moral is never ask anyone's age and answer the qtn on age.
    Let the mind be young and cheerful;you will be the best company forever.
