The Mongrel

I purchased a steed just the other night.
Exchanged for a cigar and bottle of whisky.
Bargain I’d say, as cash is tight.
Mercifully steady and solid, not frisky.

I’m not talking about a pedigree,
Just a lil’ paddock pony.
I don’t need a flash machine,
Just something reliable and some-what clean.

Shaggy coat with furry ears.
Tangled mane and hardy hooves.
This was not a spruced up pony
Who’d know dressage moves.

Broad forehead,
Softly, tapered muzzle.
Breed was unknown.
Bloodlines were a puzzle.

Wide shoulders,
Non-existent withers.
Solid hindquarters,
Fetlock feathers.

A barrel of a belly,
Was as strong as an ox.
Could go all night and day,
And live on carrots with hay.

Well I must have got a good buy,
As I’ve yet to fall or fly.
Don’t bother with a pedigree,
Go for a paddock pony!
