The other day I was looking at a zebra (as one does on a Thursday near Baldock!) and wondering what it would be like to saddle it up and ride it through the town! It was early afternoon and the only drink that had passed my lips that day was soft…
Wouldn’t it be such fun,
to ride a zebra through the town,
passers-by would wonder why,
and look me up and down!
“Look at that horse in pyjamas”
They’d say to one and all,
“riding through town in a dressing gown?
doesn’t he look a fool!”
“Perhaps he is dreaming,
riding the dusty plains,
inspecting crops in worn flip-flops
hoping that it rains!”
“It’s probably a nightmare,
After a night of drink,
farmers in pyjamas?
What must his mother think?”
With apologies to those who are looking for sense on this Wednesday morning! Have a great day, take care and avoid zebras!
