Elephant’s Priorities

What’s in the mind of an elephant

When a young girl,
No matter how beautiful,
Wants to climb on it’s back
And ride with it in the dark jungles,
Here she is, here she is
I hope I am in time
For the cereal meal they serve
At Theppakadu, hot and nice,
And the drink of water down the stream,
No matter how beautiful.
