March of the Elephant

So the elephants march on, and every tread beats out words in the dust:

“Watch, learn, love. Watch, learn, love.”

Can you hear them?

One day in shame,

the ghosts of ten thousand lords of the plains will say,

“We do not hate you. Don’t you see at last?

We were willing to fall, so that you, dear small ones, will never fall again.”

-the Silenced Truth
