Get your haiku on! I just did.

Published 08/29/08

I love elephants
and it pains me to see them
treated like garbage

paraded from town
to town for folks to gawk at
and be told untruths

about their treatment
in the circus, which exists
solely for profit

and literally
does nothing to teach people
about their real lives

in the wilderness
where they live in families
and travel for miles

where they are not hit
and confined in chains for days
in stuffy train cars

forced to do dumb tricks
just so people can laugh some
then forget it all

enter a haiku
about your feelings on this
and you just might win

some really cool stuff
and help get these elephants
out of the circus.
