The Gothic Greek Giant: An Evocative Espinela

I don't know if he's very Gothic, but he is large and greenish.

I saw the Gothic Greek Giant
taking giant strides cool and slow
I don't know where he wants to go
laid back, but never compliant

although he is not defiant

he doesn't need to be the norm
he just wants to do his own thing
to paint pictures or sometimes sing
or just hang out and watch a storm

Maybe he was used to people enough that he didn't mind awfully, but I'm still sorry for my ignorance.
      Fortunately, they learned and stopped the practice. At this point, their elephant area is one of the best in the U.S.
