Befriending the Elephant

This is just a rough draft and needs some editing.  But here it is, so far.

Befriending the Elephant

It's hard to get rid of it.
It won't fit through the door.
Maybe you could kill it, dismember it,
but somehow that seems cruel,
and also messy,
the blood would stain the carpet,
you'd never get it out.

You can't just ignore it.
Oh, you've tried,
only to discover
you sat right in a huge pile of elephant shit,
only to have the elephant
step on your toes,
bruising them, breaking those little bones.

What's left, other than to befriend the beast?
