Follow the elephant, follow him close
See where he’s going, see what he knows…
That was the message she received in a dream
So, I looked into it to see what it might mean
I went to the web and I went to the zoo
I looked for some signs that might give me a clue
And after all that, as if I had been dared
I then found myself scared

The elephant’s lineage spans millions of years
But their numbers are dropping as their land disappears
And as they are hunted for their sought after tusks
While the laws that prevent this prove not so robust
Just like us primates, the elephants are smart
They know their reflection and make music and art
But still they are in a precarious place
As an inferior race

Are we not responsible? Are we not the elephant in the room?

We are the blind men exploring the beast
Feeling the rope, the wall or pillar like feet
But with a limited reach and our limited view
Not to mention how the elephant’s and our stress can skew
Oh, and our tenuous criteria
We arrogate wisdom – we have no idea
If/when we stand above none
We’ll drop the elephant gun

Are we not responsible? Are we not the elephant in the room?
