The Elephants Came to Town
When the elephants came to town,
We were playing on the street,
And their too large forms moved
Forward, as we stood incredulous.
They were still far, when someone
Yelled, “Two elephants coming down
The road!” and we all looked up,
But we already could feel their steps.
Some ran away, but we stayed,
Not because we weren’t afraid,
But because something stopped us
From going leaving.
People say when you’re scared you
Are paralyzed, but it wasn’t fear, it was
Faith. We believed something special was
Coming our way, someday.
The elephants came close to us,
They were intimidating, but we didn’t
Move. We were expecting them,
Something good had finally come to our town.
