An Elephant at The Arcade
Mallets Creek Library Family Writing Lab, Summer 2018
The elephant with a cold is growing mold. Sick and sad. Cold and mad at his arcade. A burnt pie to try, makes the elephant cry, just one tear in his eye. The trunk up front, the tail set sail playing games in his arcade. A customer, oh what joy. It was awesome, finally fun. Time to entertain . . . With a cold and a sore thumb. The elephant presented a burnt offering. The customer, a tissue. The elephant, grateful, sneezed a big AACHOOO.
