the kind angry elephant

There once was a kind and angry elephant

who knocked down walls of a house

in the people's village

and, retreating, paused

with the sound

of a human infant's cries

rising from the demolished room,

walked a few more steps, turned round,

walked back to the house 

and carefully removed

every piece of broken wall

touching the wailing infant. 

Then turned and walked away.
