EM-Drabbles – One Hundred & Twenty-Five

“The laws of the jungle must be obeyed,” the oldest of the elephants said. “This new law must be taken from here and trumpeted to all the animals. From hyenas to gorillas, from lions to meerkats.”

“The cheetahs won’t abide by it,” said another member of the elephant council, “they always look for ways to exploit or get around our laws. The rhinos will trample roughshod over it too.”

Youngest elephant wondered why no one addressed the real problem with getting this new law adopted. It was as if they didn’t dare speak about it – the human in the room.
