The day was clear, the sky was blue, the clouds were fluffy white—
It was a splendid day to make a routine airship flight.
The Captain was relaxing in a sling upon the deck,
Dreaming of ways to spend her pay once she had cashed that cheque.
The elephants, her prized cargo, were locked up in the hold below,
Tuning their trumpets, (such a din!), for the Vaudeville show they’d soon appear in.
The sky was clear! The clouds were blue! The day was awfully bright—
When suddenly a soup of fog plopped down and ate the light.
The Captain lost her bearings; couldn’t see before her hand;
The lazy ride across the Fells could not proceed as planned.
The ashy air, the noxious smoke, blinded her wits and made her choke.
The infamous New Babbage soot had made a ruin of her commute.
The view obscured, her course unclear, the Captain stoked up steam.
She hoped to drive straight through the soup, and fly against the stream.
But the push of heavier air above her flying ship
Was too strong a force and caused her altitude to slip.
The airship lurched and swung about, and how the elephants fell out
Must have been because the hatch down to the hold had failed to catch.
Elephants one, and two, and three went tumbling earth-bound.
The wagon meant to transport them had also gone aground.
The wagon crashed into the lake. It was a crippled mess.
The bugling of the elephants broadcasted their distress.
Fearlessly, the Captain she assessed the accident’s degree.
With airship tossed, and cargo lost, her hopes of pay were royally squashed.
But our intrepid Captain knew the elephants endured—
Knew she had to locate them and get them re-secured.
First thing to do was moor the ship and tie up to the cleats.
Next thing to do was get a rope and ferret out the beasts.
She had until late Thursday night. If only she had second sight!
The Captain had to have some aid. She’d share with them when she got paid.
Someone, help the Captain spot the brutes somewhere around—
They may be near the water, or anyplace in town.
If you find one, take a pic and send it to the Captain, quick!
First one with all three will be the winner of this hunting spree.
