Better Poems

 

 

What should you do if your elders try to knock you off your high horse?
Close the gate against them and ride off.

What should you do if your friends try to knock you off your high horse?
Urge your horse into a prance.

What should you do if your children try to knock you off your high horse?
Climb down from the horse and sit in the grass.
