Donna's Unicorn


Donna set out to mount a unicorn; 
but, inadvertently, she grasped his horn;  
and, unfortunately, his horn she shorn.  
She clasped in hand that torn tremendous thorn.  
Since now there's nought his forehead to adorn, 
she, per force, mounts horse; both, of course, forlorn.

    Your work reminds me of a song by the Irish Rovers. Good descriptiveness and rhyming here.

    I guess the magic went when the horn did. Never mind, a horse is more than special and I'd give anything to ride one again. Poor Donna should have held the reigns! :)

    WONDERFULLY WITTY and creative, John. I was laghing throughout, but guess I should have had more sympathy for the unicorn. Love, Carolyn

    Thanks for the kudo. Other meanings? I tried to Limerick it but couldn't. It started as humor, then she ripped off the unicorn's horn and made him a horse. Not funny. Yes, my girlfriend is Doona. What would Sigmund F make of that? Hate to think.
