Executioner Of Olde
by tapster@mindspring.com 

Like executioner of olde
he leads the ragged, gentle giant
around and around and around

Medieval citizens echo hushed remarks
dead eyes roll in giant's head
elephant spirit crushed long ago

Birds chirp as waves slap nearby
giant calls to mother and mate
returns a sacred sound

Invisible call, invisible bond
never beaten with ankus
by Executioner of Olde

1999 By Diana Morton.
