Elephant in Hotel – Inspired by photo in National Geographic of Elephant entering hotel in Zambia

From Zambia
Comes this story
Of an elephant and his
Great memory
Guided by ancestors
On a temporal route
Soon you will see just where he
Came to stop

When the dirty river
dried into sand
He followed his destiny
Looking for mangos
To the Luangwa Valley
Where the year before
They put a hotel
Around his kitchen table

Enter elephant
The porter said
Thinking he belonged
To a an esteemed client
A woman at the bar
Dropped her cocktail
When she saw the great trunk
Enter the hotel

Thru the open doors
The beast entered
At the extreme surprise of all who saw
Direct to the patio he went in hunger
To the tree of his sustenance

And there he stayed
He stayed quite a while
Eating mangoes
And contented
