National Poetry Day Message Poem by Mimi Blockley, Ardingly College Prep.

A message from an elephant

.

To the humans that destroyed me,

Here I am in a cage

With all these children

Watching me.

.

Once I was in the wild

once upon a time I could

Stand by my mother knowing

I was safe

But I was wrong.

.

You took my tusks

you took my friends

You took my family

And you took my heart

But left me all on my own.

.

Why would you do that?

Why would you think it’s ok

to go around killing elephants

Even all animals.

That was my family.

That was my life.

Well I guess not anymore.

.

From your

Old friend

African elephant
