the elephant and the alligator
by the doc
Age Group: Adult
uplifted an elephant king
well the king was afflicted, meaningless and sorrowful
but he surrendered him or self or himself...
he was quite powerful, the leader of the herd of elephants
and they all went swimming, naturally with cats...
the alligator - check you later,
the cat did or died
but the elephant
went on struggling
to beg god to release himself from the bonds of
Infatuation, feverishness, the attachment for
wealth, sons, wives, houses, fame, leadership...
god naturally was sleeping..
so somebody had to wake him up
beseeching that an elephant was offering
should he accept it
well, how Generous
He descended from wherever
to that lake or the river-bed
and saved the elephant from the grip
of that amphibian or the reptile...
did the elephant improve in his character afterwards
or did he become
a dipsomaniac, a gambling drug addict,
so it is said, look before you leap...
decide whom or what do you want to save
forget about it
one never knows
whether the elephant after being saved
be afflicted by forest-fires, earthquakes, or in general
a devastating deluge
love u darlin'
