The Elephant in the room

by joetwo

There’s an elephant in the room

No one knows how it got there

Too big to move, it just stands there

Keeping still so as not to knock over the furniture

Trying to ignore us, and us him

The doors are too large for it, or the windows

It must have gotten in small, just a baby

Then grown, feeding on whatever was there

Can’t tell what that was either, though I thought we had more house plants

Yet another mystery surrounding this errant pachyderm

There’s an elephant in the room

And we’re going to have to deal with it


We will just have to wait and see.
