Ivory Looks Best On Me

 

This is a poem about elephants, I wrote this to help stop elephants’ lives being taken just for their tusks.

Ivory looks best on me.

 

 

 

Don’t take my tusks from me,

 

For Ivory looks best on me.

 

Don’t kill me for an ornament,

 

Because I deserve better treatment.

 

 

 

My grazing spreads the seeds,

 

I can do good deeds.

 

Farmers should not fear me,

 

Because we can live together peacefully.

 

 

 

 

 

In thirty years’ time,

 

Will I exist?

 

What have I done,

 

To be condemned to this?

 

 

 

We remember the things you do,

 

But we are gentle and will forgive you.

 

Don’t take my tusks from me,

 

For Ivory looks best on me.
