  Circus elephants
Updated 28 October 2001, 16.03
Some elephants face cruelty in circuses
Christopher has written a poem about the cruelty that some elephants face in the circus:

I think circus elephants should not be captured and trained to perform perfect tricks in front of an audience.

It is cruel because the elephants begin to get depressed and they are wild animals who do not deserve to be kept in cages and have no freedom.

I have written a poem to show how strongly I feel:

Poem

Dressed in shining glittery colours,
The elephants get ready to go,
To perform perfect, practised tricks,
In the humans' gigantic show.

Into the circus the elephants walk,
Jumping and prancing whip, whipping hard,
The elephants are led up the trailer,
With man behind as their guard.

But the elephants don't want to be famous,
They want their silent wish to come true,
To be back in scorching India,
Not here with me or you.
