Horses shall be back

Horses are in oblivion Preferred man-friendly animal since evolution Today, bit lost in mechanised, chip oriented revolution Important weapon in Bronze Age ancient wars Utilised by ancestors as domestic transporter But now restricted to official events splendour And few sporting events, races, competitive glamour And royal weddings, yoked to adorned buggies grandeur Horses shall be back in recognition With rising global warming concern With Oil prices not expected to lessen Antiquated horse carts demand shall be of high order Benefits galore, herbivorous help sustaining on grass fodder 350 degree excellent day-night vision, energy reservoir Capable of resting in short naps in standing posture Horseshoe, saddle, bridle, rein only accessories major Horse carts with no carbon emissions Saddle, hooves sans honking and pollution No ignition, start-up fuel consumption No requirement of spark plugs, engine oil can No seat belts, air bags for protection Man put blinders on horse for concentration But are themselves blinded by mad race of globalisation, liberalisation Man need to put the blinders on self–consumption Be judicious, avoid ostentation to keep in check carbon emissions Switch to horse cart, use killer vehicle only in emergent situation Today horses are oblivion If ignored concerns for eco-friendly environ Tomorrow mankind could be in oblivion ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By Hitendra Mehta May 2011 For Members contest – Eco-friendly Vehicle by Robb A.Kopp

Beautifully done, and yes....as a world we are in trouble, and the age of the horse, may well be on it's way back. Perhaps that would not be such a bad thing....providing we don't oblivorate the world first! Good luck Hitendra!!
