Wrote this for a friend. This poem + 3 others, were published
by Poetryfest, Ashland, Or, poetry book 2016, UNDER SOMEONE
ELSE'S NAME. Poetryfest sent ME a revised copy.

Some horses are jolly jokers
They'll quickly flip you
Without a hint...
Then they'll turn around
And nuzzle you, after they've
given some bones a dent

And they've left you in
A "Strangle It!" mood
Cuz poor bones are
Yelpin' loud...
I'm thinkin', with that hoss
they are none too proud

Yah, some horses are jolly
jokers, And the bones
that got the dent
While they're sittin'
on that hard ole ground
Are wonderin' where
The saddle went...
