On the matter of elephants

Since elephants are all in the news, some may enjoy Ogden Nash’s verse on elephants:

“Elephants are useful friends,

Equipped with handles at both ends.



They have a wrinkled, moth-proof hide.

Their teeth are upside down, outside.




If you think the elephant preposterous,

You’ve probably never seen a rhinosterous.”

— Ogden Nash
