so there I was
minding my own business
and trying to take care of it

out of nowhere
the elephant sat on me
just needing to rest a bit

a benevolent beast
meaning no harm
certainly on the verge of leaving

decades pass
and now the thought
of not being smushed

makes me scared
of the sadness
such a situation would bring
