A sensible pantoum, written on the tram

A sensible pantoum

Bilious velveteen elephants
Galloping galloping down
Into my study and drawing room
Out of the cloudy green sky,

Galloping galloping down
A stampede of bestial angels
Out of the cloudy green sky
Dirtying all my fine linen,

A stampede of bestial angels
Trumpeting sylph melodies
Dirtying all my fine linen
Making me spill all my tea,

Trumpeting sylph melodies,
Triumphantly trampling beds,
Making me drop all my tea,
On my (as mentioned) fine linen,

Triumphantly trampling beds,
Springing up out of the window
On my (as mentioned) fine linen
And nesting in my apple tree,

Springing up out of the window
Using their fore-hoofs for flying
And nesting in my apple tree
(All rather upsetting for me),

Using their fore-hoofs for flying,
Into my study and drawing room,
(All rather upsetting for me),
Bilious velveteen elephants.

I am particularly fond of the pantoum form.

Yes, and such are its rules that if you say a silly thing (like 'Bilious velveteen elephants') once, you have to say it at least once more.
