A Horse, A Horse, Of Course, Of Course

A Horse, A Horse, Of Course, Of Course For horses, horse flies, For humans, shame, But horses don't kill off The halt and the lame. It's apples and oranges. My, what a surprise. Horses don't deal in Deception ... and lies. Just stop and think. A no-brainer ... of course. To have a clear conscience, One needs be a horse. from a poem by Jane Hirshfield I have permission to use the phrase from her poem, and she signed the original of this poem, which I still have.

I really like this. Although it has a light tone, it's saying something profound
