“I’ve always thought elephants walk as if they have music being piped into their heads that no one else can hear. And from the roll of their hips and their swagger, I’m going to guess that the artist is Barry White.”
― Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time
“Seeing life from an Elephants point of view”
“The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?” ~ David Attenborough
‘We should all go on a luxury holiday’ Tricia announced…
She was terrified about poachers and being exploited by tourism clowns.
Putra Mas pondering on her wishes trumped up
‘I’m all ears my darling Tricia, but that would take an enormous amount of good fortune and a lot of luck”
As a smart and obliging friend that Putra Mas has always been
He was sensible to understand, but reminding her that her wish wouldn’t eventuate so easily.
Tricia then went off researching with their local travel agents to find;
The world’s best holiday destination that she had, had, on her mind
A lush Asian Rainforest set in Australia that had been specifically designed.
All creature comforts were provided at the grand hotel Perth Zoo.
Massages, manicures, with glorious mud, tropical swimming pools.
Queen Elephant sized beds, five star extravagant open barn rooms.
Birthday parties, activities lots of fun and games
The kind of people who would keep them all well, healthy, happy and safe
The room service was rated as ‘second to none’
Devoted keepers who pampered them all with friendly ‘one on ones’.
Long, lazy dirty scrub-baths and elephant sized ficus leaf snacks
“Come on guys” Tricia shouted; “let’s book now, where are our travel bags?”
Their good friend Premai excitedly; then butted in,
“I’m packing my trunk right now, so when does all of this fun and indulgence begin?
The very next day the Elephant Rescue team sneaked up…
Broke the elephants free from their shackles and safely hid them all in the back of their getaway trucks.
I can’t even show or tell you the horrors that I’ve seen,
It turns my stomach and breaks my heart to see the barbarity and cruelty of those poachers in their financial greed.
Then, I’m guessing that you have heard about these brutal acts too
