“Elephant tusks taken by poachers…” from Addlestone Library

Elephant tusks taken by poachers…

a moving poem from the Teen Book Group at Addlestone Library.

 Elephant tusks taken by poachers
Roughly 100 a day
Wanted only for the ivory
family split up.
Loyal blood pouring out
babies left feeling lonely
only poachers left happy
across the world, elephants dying.
