WEIGHT OF ELEPHANT

'Indeed it is a problem that can't be solved as easily as questioned' 
'Yes yes, it lies beyond the commoner's reach to answer as fast as said' 
'Why doubt, it is equal to its own weight, the jester jocularly said' 
Every one tried and tried, but could not, when the king questioned.

Bent upon knowing, the king announced a thousand gold coins as prize 
To one who solves, in of out of court, the next day by the same time, 
To his surprise, a fisher man came to the court before the fixed time 
And said, he would, if the prize were as big as the elephant in size.

Wondering at his audacity and hoping to lift the veil at any cost 
The king said, "Glad there's one in my country knowing it and ready 
To blot out disdonour. I'm indeed happy to honour the request ready 
And give gold equal to the weight of elephant regardless of its cost".
