The Elephant Graveyard

A valley of bones is all that is left

In a desert deserted of all things living.

White washed skeletons all bereft

Of ivory tusks stolen, but not given.

Elephants now gone, due to the theft,

Hunted to extinction, they were driven.

  1. That made my heart sad. I mentioned it on another person’s post, but I only recently found out that the ivory trade is still alive and thriving and that elephants are very endangered. So awful.
