Sealed feed bins, and pesky, playful kittens.
There'd be lush green pastures,
Acres of open fields, and
You wouldn't have horseflies.
You wouldn't have vet visits.
You wouldn't have rocky trails.
Or cold, ouchy bits
You wouldn't even have bits.
A romp in the pasture would be considered exercise,
All meals would include apples and treats,
And horses who sometimes startle and shy,
And sometimes stomp at flies,
Would still be allowed to be
In charge of the world.
If you were in charge of the world, what would you change?
