Bull like body and elephant tail,
Boarish head with tusks like nails;
Two long horns thrust out from its forehead,
Swiveling to parry or thrust until you are dead.

Shaggy black or brown fur covered its form;
Decorated with golden spots was the norm.
The deadly basilisk was its main foe;
Its venomous bite could bring dire woe.

Your prowess in battle brought you much fame,
Immortalized in heraldry and university name.
Some call you centicore, others yale or eale,
Whatever the name, I wonder if you were real.
