An insight into the gymnasium

I have a trick for understanding humanity.
It’s grand. We hunger for archetypes.
When in some fashion you witness a man
or a woman doing what they will,
inspecting themselves in the ocean
of the cosmos, on the lawn
of civilization, in the electric
wiring of language passing
from each brain stem to the next,
do this and you will know them:
where “man” is, replace with
“elephant.” For elephant politics
is as algebraic as man politics,
and an elephant in a suit
commands no more respect
from you than it should.
