Treasure Island

lee fones


never seen a elephant


I've never seen a elephant
out among the wild forest
so why are people so arrogant
to kill elephants and deforest

really just don't get it
i don't fully understand
this poem ain't no wit
this poem is well planned

shooting of elephants banned
they use the creatures tusks
poachers should be in remand
and fed on Farley rusks

really just don't get it
i don't fully understand
this poem ain't no wit
this poem is well planned

also like those forests green
no tree huger, don't chop trees
to me wrecks countryside scene
wildlife development, along with bees

really just don't get it
i don't fully understand
this poem ain't no wit
its how my feelings stand

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
