What use anyone in Pennsylvania has for a purloined mammoth tusk, I can't say, but I bet the author of The Alaska River Guide wishes she hadn't followed a criminal course, don't you?
This calls for the creation of a fond if criminally awful Ode to a Woolly Mammoth, sans my usual fretful cloning fears...
Purloining a mammoth tusk sucks
in spite of some fabulous bucks
so leave them alone
don't smuggle a bone
by dog sled, air transport, or trucks.

A tortured rhyme yet true!
And probably my last Ode published for 2011, so Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and I'm wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
See you in 2012,
