HORSE AND CARTER

In the picture circa

1910 which is in sepia,

a junk cart trundles by

as a horse is glimpsed

harness tied and reined

to a wagon, containing

discarded bicycles and

likewise bric-a-brac of

then. If ghosts of carts

could speak what could

be said of it all – the big

the smaller articles, now

destined for the melting

pot, of long past time.

The grime and smoke

which caused the fog of

all our yesterdays would

have us stroking chins to

try to comprehend it all.

But who will speak up for

the badly treated horse

So much disdain and pain

for little gain – could some

body please explain the

harshness of it all – to think

the thrashings metred out

must beggar our humanity.
