Tracking Phenomena

Morgan the elephant wanted a mate
Remembered since elephants never forget
How to cross Kenyan border now branded unsafe.
By day hiding in forests from human sight
Continuing his stealthy travels by night
He arrived safe and sound in Somalia.

Outfitted with GPS implanted collar
Morgan conveyed unexpected good news
Somalian elephants mourned as dead were alive.
Scientists thought Morgan’s journey a marvel
Through scourge of war and human ferocity
One love-lorn elephant outwitted hostilities.
