Elephant Elephantitis - Poem by Kevin Rottweiler

The retired circus elephant
with big lymph glands
feels queasy
feels uneasy
sick to his stomach
the drugs did not work
so he struggles along
eating the vegetables
with big enormous limbs
big glands
like on television
like on the medical shows
where they have affairs
and the elephant knows
this is no joke
and he takes his time
just trying to get along
with big limbs
from the parasites
he got all plugged up
and the tapeworms got him
they seemed to get him
but he has strength in
mighty bones
and this big elephant
says he plans on being
baptized this Sunday
because he heard things
about Noah's Ark
and a man named Jesus
could save him
