It looked like it would stomp any minute

trumpeting in terror from being woken

after all these years.

What had we done?

What if it went berserk?

Trampled on our good intentions?

Pooped all over the room?

[Have you ever seen elephant poo?]

Or, worse, collapsed on one of us like a slab

Of cement?

  1. thanks Beth; it’s always been a topic that’s interested me; you may like to skip along to its sequel ‘While on the Subject of Elephants’. Would like to hear what you have to say about that, especially the last paragraph ๐Ÿ™‚ if you get time. I’m going back to bed in a minute. It’s 4 a.m in Adelaide. What am I doing at my computer?
