Elephants Never Forget

Circuses and zoos alike

Both use so much

For money and

Entertainment purposes

Elephants are no stranger

They performed for many

They will always remember

 

One little child

Watched in amazement

As the elephants walked

Circling the ring

Some on two legs

One on all four

Such elegance and grace

 

The child did not know

The torment the elephants

Endured, and neither did

The elephants know

The same was of the child

 

Each lived such separate lives

Connected only for a few

Minutes for entertainment

Purposes only

The elephant will never forget
