Elephant In The Room

The must and huskiness

Of this issue reeks with stench and despair

Africana Loxodonta

This magnanimous beast has appeared

Out of nowhere

Can’t climb above it

Can’t tip toe around it

No ducking underneath it

Or hoping it won’t find me

Lock, stock, and barrel

I am forced to stare at this mammal

Face to face

Faced with fate

The writing’s etched on the wall

But my faith won’t be erased

The Earth shudders beneath me

There is no escape or use

In calling for help

This test was designed specifically

For me, myself and I

Not somebody else
