'Vox Humana'? It's the name on the organ stop held in the elephant's trunk.
The human voice. Saying the truth.
We're so busy running the race of life we don't notice the big obvious end to it all.
Safe in the homestead, we don't mention the elephant in the room
Oh, and that chrome lettering, which seems to say RIP? A friend who's better at these things than I am, told me it's a car ensignia, from a Riley Oxford. What would I know?
