THE SECRET'S OUT

THE SECRET'S OUT 
 
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."
