Today I heard an elephant thump,
It hit me when I watched the elephant jump,
It wasn't tiny, thin, and frail,
It was big, fat, and had a long gray tail!
I remember it all very clear,
I still feel a shake from the ground, oh dear!
I hope all my friends believe me
When I say how loud a thump can be!
I walk past mom and my dad,
They look a little bit sad;
They wish they would have felt the thump,
That had not been a small bump.
Now I'm not one to be frightened,
In those situations, pretty well, I fare,
But if you would have heard that elephant thump
You would have jumped out of your chair!
