"The Best Way Out Is Always Through" - Robert Frost

There once was an elephant, walking in gloom
He was sure he was heading for doom!
For humans and all
Made a quite false call
That he always appeared in their rooms!
Never had he been there,
Never at all!
The room would have to be wide and tall!
This poor grey elephant
Would never assume
That when humans said "The Elephant in the Room"
It was just a saying
Most everybody used
But that poor grey elephant
Forever stayed confused.

The author's comments:
Everyone knows the cliche "the elephant in the room", but what would an elephant think about that? I decided to write this fantasy poem about an elephant's point of view.
