Runa's elephant

by Runa, age 5

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—

No! no! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right.)

Howe'er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;

The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)

Poem Eletelephony by Laura Elizabeth Richards
