What did that elephant ever do to you?
You’re no human,
such a horrible monster,
feeding her with a pineapple,
filled with active firecrackers.

Her fetus exploded within
and so she died,
found wounded in the flood,
stiff as a statue.
Why are you so cruel?
Wouldn’t you like it too,
if you were tortured with the same meal?
Because I’m sure that right now,
many would like to get you killed!
