“HOW DO I LOVE THEE” – By Lesly Evans Johnson

“How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways–

With chemicals and wrapped saran,

On monster stacks I’ll make you stand,

And hide sharp trinkets ‘neath your frog,

And hood your eyes in blinding fog.

I’ll stall you always high in ties,

About your beatings I’ll tell lies.

Your tender mouth I’ll bit with wire,

And cut your tail to heights inspired.

I’ll ride your kidneys on surface hard,

Make sure you carry extra lard.

I’ll always ride with long-shanked rein,

Leaning on to increase the pain.

With chains I’ll bang your sored sections,

But lidocaine them for inspections.

And when I’ve ruined your bones and hooves,

When you’re so broken you will not move,

When last you’ve lost this human fight,

I’ll take you out on a moonless night,

I’ll take you now with care and caution,

And send you to the slaughter auction.

For me, old love, you need not sorrow,

I’ll start to love a colt tomorrow.

THE LAST RIDE HOME

All of these bind the sore  “Big Lickers” together?

  • Greed
  • Control
  • Addiction
  • Ego
  • Envy
  • Way Of Life

 Isn’t the Tennessee Walking Horse the ultimate victim?
