Ebony and ivory

I hope they don´t any more kill elephants to make pianos.  I wasn´t going to write about that – suddenly it´s just taken me somewhere else. OK, here´s a poem from years ago, written for a great drummer.

I want to come back as an elephant,

because I hope there still will be elephants,

and I want to live a long life

with you

and we wouldn´t have to play quiet

unless we wanted to.
