Jacques du Lumerie


Elephants in a tender embrace...


Elephants in a tender embrace
Thoughts about the wild hills
That overlook the sunny plains.


'What land! ' they say
'How beautiful it is
Now that the world of mankind
Has gone away forever
To live under the ground
Afraid of the white sky! '


The elephants roam the world of land
Whilst below,
Men bite each other in half
In a kind of macabre joke.
