John, the Work Horse

My name is John--the work horse
And I was teamed with Prince. 
We could easily do a job at which
An Arabian horse would flinch.
Prince's work is over now.
He's buried in the pasture.
I am too old to work so hard,
According to my kind master.

He tells me I must take my ease
And to just enjoy my leisure,
That he is going to retire
And be a lazy old geezer.
But he still drives the plow team
And I just follow after.
I try to mind his gees and haws.
He doubles up with laughter.

When he keeps his promise to retire,
I will stop working too.
We'll spend our time malingering
Beneath the skies of blue

My life seems to last forever now that I’ve start aging The sudden onset aches and pains start engaging My home is in a theme park petting zoo where other animals live and rest Each day zoo attendants feed, water, and groom us to look our best for our guests These little creatures called Children come into the petting zoo With the sounds of ooohs, aaahs of surprise as they walk through Sheep, goats, rabbits, to feed and interact physically with safety Some of these little creatures try to chase me, some of us get shaky A tall creature with a long mane and forelock yells, “Wait a minute baby!” Is this tall creature going to save me? A young pony, a true friend is 7 hands at the wither not as tall as me Wearing a blanket and saddle for a rider to sit, and bridle to guide in safety Zoo attendants teach the proper ways to handle animals while brushing my forelock, poll, croup, and withers They lift my gaskin the area behind my leg between the stifle and hock pointing to my fetlock explaining that is actually more like the ball of the foot on a human Naming my coronet where it meets my hoof down to my frog; a highly elastic wedge-shaped mass on the underside of the hoof and supports both locomotion and circulation When all is done the attendant extending a hand placing a treat close to my muzzle treating us with love and kindness, as we bubble full of admiration
10/20/2016 Horses - Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Shadow Hamilton use the following words Muzzle, forelock, fetlock, hock, withers, stifle, poll, croup, gaskin, frog, hoof and coronet.
