POEM: Elephantine

By Berniegourley @berniegourley

That mammal stands a mile tall.
Far too proud to take a fall.

It lumbers on til days end,
nudging family round the bend.

Water hole. Day’s close. Circled up.
In the center stands a pup.

On infirm legs, the youth shakes
as adults stomp and earth quakes.

Predators stalk, but today’s odds
favor the prey and defy the gods.
