Operation Mammoth Drop

Don’t forget to pack your trunks…

New Troop: Mammoth


Six Krystaran races
To learning much inclined,
They went to see a Mammoth
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.


The Dwarf approached the Mammoth
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
“God bless me!—but the Mammoth
Is very like a wall!”


The Orc, feeling of the tusk,
Cried: “Ho!—what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me ’tis mighty clear
This wonder of a Mammoth
Is very like a spear!”


The Naga grasped the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
“I see,” quoth he, “the Mammoth
Is very like a snake!”


The Elf reached out his eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
“What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain,” quoth he;
“‘Tis clear enough the Mammoth
Is very like a tree!”


The Lapina, who touched the ear,
Said: “E’en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a fan!”


The Raksha rogue had soon begun
About the beast to grope,
Than, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
“I see,” quoth he, “the Mammoth
Is very like a rope!”


And so these fine Krystarans
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!


So, oft in arguments and wars
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about a Mammoth
Not one of them has seen!
