In the Elevator

The large elevator that serves the zoo
opens its doors while I'm thinking of you
My mind is in turmoil after our fight
the words we exchanged echoed through the night
The door closes tight, I open my mind
to find my view blocked by a mighty behind
This ride I'm sharing with huge white rhino
who's slipping and sliding over lino
Lucky for me that I'm facing its rear
as the rhino's sharp horn fills me with fear
At last doors open, I exit in haste
to raise the alarm,my fear not misplaced
