A Quicky for April's Writing Prompt - Elephant as Bird


Nothing wildly impressive here, but a test to see what I could come up with in 30 minutes or less. The photo that inspired this weird little ramble can be found here: Elephant Bird

Elephant as Bird
I wonder . . .
If an elephant could be a bird, would he ride the thermals?
Roost in the top of the baobab tree?
Entertain the waterhole with a song?
Let wide-eyed tourists snap his pic?
Or would this giant ele-bird buzz a pride of hunting lions?
Mob a cheetah from its perch?
Take a croc for an aerial spin?
And poop on nasty poachers’ heads?
I wonder . . .
