Pachyderm on a Rampage

The elephant in the room
crushing you, making it hard to breathe as you’re pressed against the wall
Yet you smile,
pretend you don’t see it, don’t feel it,
as it throws its weight around.
Admitting the elephant is there is wrong?
Don’t others see it?…it’s freaking huge!
Yet no one addresses it.
They politely and gingerly walk around it,
being careful not to get crushed
by its burgeoning weight.
Only as the pachyderm is about to exit the building
will its presence be acknowledged,
and even then,
with reluctance.
