What Do You Do

What do you do when something new,
crosses your path out of the blue?
What ya do? what you do?
What you do? what do you do?

I think once upon a time
Heffalumps ruled the forest.
They romped and stomped
And blew their horns
To their near and dearest.
Be scared, for all the rest of us.
A Heffalump is, as a Heffalump does
As a Heffalump now, as a Heffalump was.
