WEIGHT OF ELEPHANT

The angler then requested the king to ride the elephant to the lake, 
On arrival, he got it conveyed to the boat kept for this in the lake 
And made a mark with chalk on the hull to know the depth, the boat sank 
Taking it out he filled the boat with sand till it touched that mark.

He weighed the sand then in a common balance to the last gram 
And declared the extact weight of elephant to the king in assembly 
Listening, the audience hailed him a great wit endowed with rare brain 
The crescendo of encomium died, when the king rose up from assembly.

Moving towards the fisher man with a smile. he surprised the people 
With a unique statement that he would give him his second daughter 
And solemnise their wedding along with that of the first daughter 
At the next auapicious occassion in the presence of all the people.
