Horses

There was a blue horse,
A yellow horse and
A green horse, so
The blue horse said
”Listen,”
And the yellow horse said
“Listen, Listen!”
And the green one said
“Listen, hear me speak.”
But none of them listened,
And no ideas were shared.
They just stood in the barn
Yelling “Listen, Listen, Listen
Listen” until the hay de-
composed and everything began
to feel so familiar and the
Horses broke my legs the
next morning and cried when they had to put me
Down.

Hm, I suppose my inspiration was 3 glass horses on the table.
