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.
note: true story, hunger amidst plenty ignites righteous anger.
