Elephants Dining at Fast Food Places


they stick their trunks into the window
almost harrassment to the vendors
cheeseburgers and cola
going down long wind pipes
and methane gas from rear end rope tails
dining at the fast food gallery
has always been a hit
for hungry elephants
seeking a peanut or two
and the methane from their
rear ends
filling up the car
nobody is laughing
but the children
and the balloons being filled
with the gas from elephant rear ends
and they dine at fast food places
elephant trunks and funny faces
shakes, fries and sunny skies
nobody loves the smell
and the children laugh
methane gas from rear end rope tails
and the veterinarians need work
and they help the circus elephants
and they dine at fast food places
