Elephant, Chester Zoo : Image captured and painted by the author

An acrostic in response to fandangos one word challenge by Inky.

It’s found in various jungles,

very few animals don’t have it

often found in the mouth you see

really the hunters shouldn’t go after it – they would

yell the trees down if the animals went after theirs

Could that be the tooth fairy

At your door ?

Very busy is she, and her friends

in the trade of teeth dropped out

the value of the ivory….increased over time, even if

yellow or off white, and donning a hole or two
