Today's poem is by Kim Bridgford

The Elephant in the Room
        Donít kiss an elephant on the lips today.
        Lucky Numbers 21, 4, 38, 49, 5, 11

Choose another way to conduct yourself.
Donít kiss an elephant on the lips today,
As much as you might like to. Just play golf,
Or take a trip to feed your urge to play.

Donít kiss an elephant on the lips today.
If itís romance you want, check personal ads—
Or take a trip to feed your urge to play.
Donít be a prisoner to these passing fads.

If itís romance you want, check personal ads
(You might find elephants turn others on).
Donít be a prisoner to these passing fads,
But go for broke—the trunk, the lips, the skin,

As much as you might like to—or just play golf.
Choose another way to conduct yourself.
