A Stable Relationship

I love thoroughbreds…


I love thoroughbreds
and things equine;
caring for horses
suits me just fine.

The trainer’s a lady
of a certain age,
she is my boss
and pays my wage.

I am her jockey
and have lost count
of the number of times
I mount and dismount.

I have to be skilled
and work very hard.
If I don’t perform
I’ll get my cards.

There’ll come a time
when she has to decide
if she wants a rider
or a bit on the side.
