'Moya and The Elephant Dance'
On a moonlit night when the silvered stars shimmering with delight
With wrinkled flesh and baggy knees
Their rumbling pierces the clouds
And to this day we can’t know why
Mesmerising all who feel
But when night has flown and day is dawn
While some believers celebrate
It is said that elephants roaming wild

Moya and the Elephant Dance
Disability Equality in Education
in 'all equal all different'
Misery gnaws her
Five strong sons all dead and gone
Her face beautiful creases
Scarf a voluptuous frame
Eighty years of grief
Shrink back from the brink of hell
She lights the peace flame
Dark weathered fingers
On her finely chiselled hands
Who’d have thought she’d kill?
