American Elephant Soup

by Kevin Rottweiler

The big elephant grabbed the soup

mostly alligator was at hand

but enjoyed mushroom and potato

so Elsie grabbed the soup cans

waving her American flag

wherever she went

proud, so proud to be free

and at home

she stirred the soup

so proud to eat a wonderful dish

now this was followed by peanut butter

sandwiches and a special wish

Elsie was a good girl

nothing could break her spirit

during the recession of 2007

she waved her flag in pride
