Once Upon a Horse

I used to be a man with two hands
and two stout legs---I miss them sometimes
but I’d rather walk and run on all four limbs,
for I do prefer hooves over dirty hands
and smelly feet. I’d rather whinny as a
horse than whine as a human boss. I like
the taste and smell of grass and the feel of
mud beneath my horseshoed feet. No more
bunions or gout that always made me scream
and shout while I lied in bed wishing I
was not living, but dead. I now live in a stall
and I’m having a ball, with plenty of hay,
and tons of fun--- that fills my carefree day.

It’s just so damn good to be a horse…
