Dreaming of Sleeping

The last thing I saw
Before waking from bed
Was a clumsy baby elephant
In the city.

Three days, 36 hours
Running out of power
Daydreaming of sleeping
Here in the quiet night.

For the money they say
And I think
I would rather be babysitting
That baby elephant.

In Kenya his mother was murdered
For Ivory.
I feed him and cuddle him
But I will never be a mother.

Stop the sale of ivory, please.
Hopefully soon
I can sleep at night again.
