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.
