The elephant’s trunk

How the elephant got his trunk

Is a matter for debate.

Some say it was a crocodile;

Some think it was just fate.


But as he had no fingers,

The elephant, being no fool,

Found his trunk so long and bendy

Was a rather useful tool.


It reached up high for tasty leaves

And made a useful straw

For reaching into water holes –

Now who could ask for more?


How did the elephant get his trunk?

I wonder what he’d say.

I expect he’d answer “Well, you see,

God just made me this way.”
