An elephant talks to tourists in a safari vehicle (by Mitch Sisskind)

Would you please not take any photos
from me? Thank you very much. I ask nicely.
Some elephants enjoy the limelight
But to my ears, oh god, those clicks
Cell Phone Cameras! (some trumpets)
Please don’t whisper or laugh either
About white elephants, pink elephants,
elephants in the room, elephant seals,
elephant beetle, elephant ears (plant),
Elephant Walk (Elizabeth Taylor Movie),
Elephantiasis (disease) and restrict
With the adjective elephantine unless
Regarding a real elephant.
Thanks again. I ask nicely!
