National Poetry Day Message Poem from a Rhino by Liz Brownlee

Message From a Rhino


Who am I,

in the dust

dripping blood,

built like stone

from elephant grass,

and cooled by mud?


Who am I,

dripping blood

down my chin,

shot through my

shields of

mosaic skin?


Who am I,

dripping blood,

face hacked and sawn?

Who am I,

who am I,

without my horn?
