A Horse for Dinner

I went to the vet today, Most eager to hear what he’d say, ‘Threw me out on my ear, With words most sincere, “That horse is too fat, no more hay”. I pondered his words for a while, Not sure I could do this in style, Made the horse a nice steak With plain potato baked, He finished his meal with a smile. So I talked to my vet once again, Said his words had been a god-send, For my horse is quite svelte, He can buckle his belt, And that stallion and I are best friends. Now the horse comes for dinner each night, Pulls up to the table just right, We light a cigar, Have a drink from the bar And toast to the vet with delight. Inspired by Robert L. Hinshaw A Master Limerickman 11/8/2018

LOL I just read Bob's poem and now am laughing at the funny story you told so well in yours, Janice. The images of the horse buckling his best, pulling up to the table and having a cigar are hilarious! Way to go! Hugs, Carolyn

Thanks, Bob. I consider your approval high praise. I really caught the limerick bug yesterday after reading your great poems. I do love the meter and humor of limericks. And I meant what I said at the end of my home, Master Limerickman.
