Elephant in the Garden

The elephant in my garden
Keeps eating my summer planting
The hedge in no way keeps him out
He keeps pulling up the trees
The greatest injustice
Was when he broke the birdbath
I set a trap
He wouldn’t take the bait
I called a service
They don’t do elephants
Eventually, however
He started helping me with the laundry
Clearing brush off the roof
I let him stay
But I can’t grow any turnips
