***~***~***~***

On Elephants

You find beneath
The thickest skin
The softest of
All hearts
Those eyes that seem
So human
That has a gentle touch

These giants of our planet
In forests
And in fields
Their memories they
Reach back
As far back as do ours

So why do be
Exploit them
Tear out
Their pretty tusks
And force them to
Do labor
Are they kinder than we are?
