Elephants

People think they are fat
When they sit down things go splat
But really there is so much more
When two males see each other there’s a war
Mothers on the other hand are caring
Come close and you’ll be daring
They have humongous tusks across their face
And walk with a certain grace
Elephants have very big ears
When you make fun of them, their eyes fill with tears
They live together in a heard
To them living alone is just absurd
They sway from side to side
And have a very callous hide
And as you can see, there is a lot to say
About the big and gray elephants of today

I didn't notice it either, I was distracted by all of the good things in the poem to notice!
