When an elephant dies the lover takes the body and rolls it over and over.
When an elephant is dead it lies in a way that living elephants are not able to.
When an elephant dies he takes the body and rolls it over.
He scrolls his trunk and pulls his head back.
And some call that honor but it looks like someone who wants religion for a minute.
He does not X out the window.
He is someone who wants to be told that there is something else.
