Beastly

Leonora’s elephant
is now in Chester Zoo.
Quain removed it yesterday,
despite her wild boo-hoo.

Leonora’s elephant
(Xenophon by name)
was not a fit companion
for an innocent beldame.

What pachydermal magic
did Xenophon exude
to entice young Leonora
to ride it fully nude?

Let’s not go there, Gentle Reader,
where beastly thoughts may fester.
Let’s draw a veil of silence
— though we might stop off at Chester.
