The elephant despite his looks and size
Is revered by many as gentle and wise,
Its probably his trunk and flapping long ears
That make him look so humungous and fierce.
With those ears and nose, I assumed he could better sense
Subtly -things that might resolve the hate, the difference,
Between human beings , so I asked him to think
Of ways to bridge the gaps and interlink
Human thoughts based on our common heritage.
He laughed though his answer was wise and sage:
“My ears I use to cool off, my nose I use-
“For a hose or a straw or a tentacle as I choose!”
“Why do you need an outsider to bring you peace?
“Use your own brains and good sense, if you please!”
