A Twistee Poem.

We don’t normally do poetry, but since Elephant House has released a new drink called Twistee we wrote something with all the ‘ee’ rhymes we could think of. Comment if you can think of any more rhymes.

I climbed a tree

That was in the sea

It was occupied by manatees

One said to me

‘Hi there, hee hee

Would you like to be my employee?’

I said ‘let me see’

To the sea-tree manatee

He nodded his head and did decree

‘You shall work for me!

And for free!

And never may you be an absentee!’

I had to pee

So I said ‘excuse me’

And swam to the shore and also had some tea

And then with glee

I got on one knee

And proposed to Leo Fibonacci

(He died in the 13th century

And now is a zombie)

He said ‘But what about the manatee?’

‘I will wed thee’

I told he

‘And we’ll live with the sea-tree manatees’

He said ‘I must flee’

And drank his coffee

And left me without a fiancee

The sea-tree manatee

Now on land, a refugee

Found me and offered me a toffee

‘Come work in my factory,

We manufacture frisbees

You’ll be happy with us, I foresee!’

I said ‘I disagree’,

Finished my thosai and chutney

And travelled back home to finish my degree
