I wish I were an elephant

With rugged trunk so long and thick

T’would be my speaking instrument

The trumpet sounds both loud and quick.

I grunt and growl and rumble too

Traveling with the herd for miles

My hooves send messages to you

While trunks curve down for friendly smiles.

I’m told that I am very smart

My memory so ever long

Seems I’ve an extra loving heart

Among all beasts I’m the most strong.

Now I’ve been here since mammoth days

And that is like forever time

By now you should respect my ways

And help me to survive decline !
