Smart Horse, Stupid Girl

One weekend I decided to do some camping
Along with good friends
and go horseback riding.
Cooking away on the open pit
not my thing, I must admit.
So I decided to have a ride
In the middle of the night
Upon my beautiful horse
Tanked full of beer-
fearing no recourse.
Into the woods we sped
Not able to see, and quite tipsy
I thought it a blast
Till I hit that tree
on the ground I went
almost broke a knee.
Miles away from camp,
Thank the Lord my horse stayed
with me.
Together, following her track
I limped back.

One thing I must make clear,
Never ride a horse drinking beer!

    Too funny. Makes me wonder how "cowboys" got back to the ranch. They don't tell us in the movies. Great write Amy.
