Elephants and Peanuts. What is the Connection?

by Rishikesh Suthaar aged 8

My lovable baby elephant
is secretly hidden in the house
in the basement
I gave him food
Peanut butter, peanut pickle,
peanut jam, peanut bread
and peanut ice cream.

It kept on saying Peanuts, peanuts
I got so annoyed that in class
I drew peanuts in my work books
My teacher found out somehow
and yelled at me
and sent me out of the classroom

Elephants and peanuts
What is the connection?

    This is beautiful poem. I like the bit ‘My lovable baby elephant
    is secretly hidden in the house
    in the basement
    I gave him food
    Peanut butter, peanut pickle,
    peanut jam, peanut bread
    and peanut ice cream.’ You did. Well done.
