Elephant

The Low Note

Sinewy long trunks wiggling,

Wrinkled ears twitching

Who knew elephants could dance? 


But no one else knows why they are dancing.


A quirk of physiology

Endowed him with vocal chords 

Twice as long as a normal human.


But no human can hear the sound.


A gospel singer of renowned, 

Today, in the mood to show off his unnatural gift,

Hits the low-G imperceptible to humans.

The elephants love it.
