Ramblings 515


The elephant in the room

Evidently got beyond fed up

And to remedy the moment

Stamped on all of them

Leaving a bloody mess

That no one could ignore

Maybe now time'll be allotted

To address the lack of concern

Excellent, with a sharp but understated way of making the point.

This "rambling" can easily be connected to the larger political picture, especially to what's happening around the globe. I like the use of the elephant as a symbol in the poem.

What an image. Brought a huge smile. A classic interpretation which in my humble opinion stands with the best. Thanks for posting this gem :)

I like this. It's very cryptic, but, as Jim says, it makes a point. I'm guessing that "the elephant in the room" and the "lack of concern" are real, while the "bloody mess" is more a figure of speech.

Wish i could write like you.To create an icon so meaningful through my words is something i haven't managed yet.Bravo.

I'm not sure what this is about specifically, but it's impossible not to get the message.

Very vivid, to say the least.
