herd mentality

A herd of elephants march towards the light.
My grandmother collected wooden elephants and that is the only reason necessary to do like wise it seems. I received my first elephant from a Kenyan friend, and my second as a memento of a little trip and the third from a friend who, upon seeing two elephants on my shelf, felt they could be improved upon by the addition of a third. The rest added so quietly that I woke up one morning and found the herd was getting out of hand.
They have begun to travel home in my visiting sister's suitcase. I haven't warned her about herd mentality but I can hear a gentle thunder.........
