Salami for a Horse

Salami for a Horse. 
Driving home from the man whose profession 
is to study people´s entrails, rice pudding he
had said and no booze- and for this banality 
he charged me 80 euros; the car stopped and
I opened the back door- of the car- and let out
my horse. It is a small horse my feet reached 
the ground and I helped the horse by walking
too- sitting. Nearing home it galloped which 
was painful for my ankles.  
Stabled it on the veranda, but as I had no hay 
it eat the wicker chair, which displeased my cat 
that used to sleep in it.  Morning, the horse was 
on the road the cat sat on top of it dressed as 
a musketeer, looking like Tony Bandera, the cat 
swung its hat the horse neighed; I opened a tin 
of low fat rice pudding, - had wanted salami 
on warm loaf with butter- rang for a tow- truck 
and horseless began walking to the car.

    Best lines: Nearing home it galloped which was painful for my ankles. the cat sat on top of it dressed like a musketeer, looking like Tony Bandaras. You are so goofy for a mariner. love, Kathy

    Nowadays you have to be careful that salami isn't really horsemeat... Terry
