Eleven benevolent elephants

Trained by their masters
To work tirelessly in the service of elephant-kind

They lumbered away from the temple on an icy morning to go out into the world
Inspired to perform good deeds
To serve, to spread the word

Selfless and kind
Eschewing the trappings of a materialistic life
Dedicated to charity

– – –

The labors of a few were recognized
Lauded celebrated
These few began to see themselves as living on a higher plane
Forgetting all they had learned, falling

A lesser number of others inspired fear in the hearts of those they sought to help
Set upon by the narrow minded they were beaten
Chased away, some gave their lives

A select few were allowed to serve
They benefited greatly – as did those they lived amongst
