    Here is the accompanying verse by Brian Sibley:

    ‘A Herd of Elephants’

    If you’re seeking a herd of elephants

    They are reasonably easy to spot

    By their outsize ears and their grey, baggy pants –

    And two things that I almost forgot:

    One is their tusks of sufficient size

    To put fear into dentists’ hearts;

    Second, their trunks that, to my surprise,

    They employ in the musical arts.

    Answering the call of the ancient Muse

    With trumpeting fanfares absurd,

    Means that herds of elephants, if they choose,

    Can never be seen and not heard.
