The Mullumbimby blokes new bull
Was looking kind of poor,
He shunned Ray's Jersey milking cows
And serviced them no more.
To buy this so-called champion
Poor Ray had saved for years
And seeing him the way he was
It near brought him to tears.
Ray thought ... I'll ring the local vet
To come this very day,
If any one can perk him up
He'd surely know a way.
The vet he looked him up and down,
Then handed Ray a pill.
"This ought to do the trick," he said,
Then handed him the bill.
That pill it did the trick all right
His vigour was now back.
Ray fed his mate a pill a day
To keep the bull on track.
The neighbour viewed the goings on
And sought the secret out.
Ray then revealed, "It's in a pill,
A miracle no doubt."
"So what does this pill look like then?"
The neighbour sought a hint.
"It's big and white," Ray then replied,
"And tastes like peppermint."
