It's only a horse, a dog, a ......etc, etc,


Ach, it’s only a horse, or two, or even three,
That we lost again in Calgary,
I ask, what’s all that the fuss about?
Is there a need to cry or shout?
Accidents do happen dear,
With all that rolling stock and gear,
I mean in this heat near thirty four,
It happened once or twice before,
The horses they enjoy the games,
Though some of them it maims and lames,
They’re always raring to go,
I know, the vets they told us so,
They love to run around with speed,
In this heat to pound their feet,
Why take away the fun from them,
And too the little calves and ken,
Thousands come to see them all,
No good them staying in the stall,
Them critters all from little calves to bulls so tall,
It’s so much fun, to see them cowpokes fall,
So we kill a few, but we love them just the same,
It’s all such fun, it is our game,
Like the Olympics of ancient Greece,
Here, we use wagon wheels and plenty grease,
Mr. Harper our patron saint, ain’t no sissy,
Not like that Saint, that from Assisi,
Come one, come all, and bring a gun,
I’d guarantee you’ll have much fun,©13/07/2012

jasmin, the bravado all of the participants proclaim at the expense of helpless animals is disturbing - "the beast of burden" were never intended to be so burdened for frivolity - crack the whip of attention and give twenty lashes of disapproval to this barbaric game - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Your satire stings like a whip! I recall that long-ago day when I picked up an old man by the road with a paper bag on my way to Medicine Hat. I soon found out that he wasn't a bum, just an old Indian on his way to what he called, “the Indian doings.” The paper bag carried his lunch. When I dropped him off, I saw that it was a rodeo. Told him I didn't have time to join him at his invitation. I regret now that I didn't stop by and partake of an Indian tradition on the Canadian prairie.

First the seals getting killed up there in Canada and now the horses, and here I thought that your country was against killing...I guess only of killing people for killing other people...e

I am in full agreement with you, Jasmin. Such shameful behaviour shows how "Earthians" have not evolved since the time of the Romans and their gladiators. Thank you, friend. Love and peace to you,

We are truly a self-centered callous species, and we seem to care less and less about the tremendous suffering that we inflict upon other earthly species.

i admit in my younger days to being
a bullfight aficionado and spent many sundays
at the fights in Madrid; now i wouldn't go
near a ring..i've grown up and learned the ugliness of
using and abusing animals for sport.
Well said, Jasmin, kudos to you!
