They Call You a Horse

They call you a horse, But you live in the sea, You can't gallop or run, Or have any fun. You don't like to eat hay, And you never go 'Neigh.' Perhaps you're a little hoarse, --A little sea horse, of course!

Thank you, Maria. You've opened my eyes to something. Amazingly enough, I hadn't considered that a sea horse could be viewed as 'cute.' Blessings, gw

Thank you so much. I am humbled, grateful---and glad you liked it, all of these at once...I actually had a couple of 7-year olds critique it, and they liked it too. Thank you for sponsoring the contest...Now it's my turn to (ante up $40 bucks, join the Soup, and) sponsor a contest or two myself! Best wishes, gw
