The Elephant Man
There once lived a man who became so disfigured,
A freak is how he was generally considered.
His name -Joseph Merrick or as The Elephant Man.
His life became awful as his problems began.
He was known a monster and was greatly mistreated;
With jeers and with taunts he must have been greeted,
But if there is another thing about him that's known,
He was well-read and clever and not entirely alone.
For he was helped by a doctor - Sir Frederick Treves;
And compassion is then what Mr. Merrick received.
Another thing which may have made amends,
In the theatre he seemed to find a few friends.
We must all now learn from this strange situation,
To not treat those who are different with such degradation.
So the world could be better rather than a calamity
If to those who are different you show some humanity.
