The Cow


By the edge of the cliff where the grass is juicy

the cow tried to eat it all the last straw you can say

alas, it tipped over and fell into the sea

and since happened in Dover, it swam to Holland

and joined the Dutch cattle.

This was a good solution till the cow demanded

special privileges such as imported Dover grass,

when it didn`t get it will, it swam back.

On the way across the channel, it was run over

by a Panamanian registered tank-ship.

Children had to go to school hungry no sausages

or milk for breakfast.

The ship, the farmer (not setting up a fence) and

the Dutch got the blame, this wouldn`t have happened

if we had let, the cow gets its own way.

A nice conundrum Jan.

I think it is all down to the cow's attitude:

Was going too near the edge an accident or a calculated risk?

Demanding special treatment is not normally a bovine trait, especially if she was paying her dues.

I think it would have been better had she never left home.
