He thought he saw...

He thought he saw an Elephant
That practised on a fife:
He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife
'At length I realize', he said,
'The bitterness of Life!'
 
He thought he saw a Buffalo
Upon the chimney-piece:
He looked again, and found it was
His Sister's Husband's Niece
'Unless you leave this house', he said,
I'll send for the police!'
 
He thought he saw a Rattlesnake
That questioned him in Greek:
He looked again, and found it was
The Middle of Next Week.
'The one thing I regret', he said,
'Is that it cannot speak!'
 
He thought he saw a Banker's Clerk
Descending from the bus:
He looked again, and found it was
A Hippopotamus:
'If this shoud stay to dine', he said,
There wo'n't be much for us!'
 
He thought he saw a Kangaroo
That worked a coffee-mill:
He looked again, and found it was
A Vegetable-Pill
'Were I to swallow this,' he said,
'I should be very ill!'
 
He thought he saw a Coach-and-Four
That stood beside his bed:
He looked again, and found it was
A Bear without a Head.
'Poor thing,' he said, 'poor silly thing!
'It's waiting to be fed!'
 
He thought he saw an Albatross
That fluttered round the lamp:
He looked again, and found it was
A Penny-Postage-Stamp.
'You'd best be getting home,' he said:
'The nights are very damp!'
 
He thought he saw a Garden-Door
That opened with a key:
He looked again, and found it was
A Double Rule of Three:
'And all its mistery', he said,
'Is clear as day to me!'
