As the Elephant Woke Up

    The new elephant came to the zoo in Africa. He trotted to his cage nervously as he saw that his new neighbor had a big horn on his head. Since the elephant ran away from his home in the Asian outbacks, he was scared but fearless. He saw that he had to accomplish this new feat by showing pride in getting put next to the most feared animal there. As he turned and made contact with the ferocious creature, he was even more cautious now. With wrinkles that lined every inch of his body to the scar on his eye. The elephant wasn't meant to live like this. He was so worried that he stumbled over his water bucket and passed out.
