“Envy” by Mitch Hicks

I want to be that horse
The smile you give as you mount and sit astride
Gripping thighs that press close and tight
Your hands that pat and stroke with care
A long hard ride brings pleasure and pain
Feeling the crop in your hand and my heart in your lap
Fields of freedom with pasture I graze
Envy at four legs…. well maybe

    Arrrrr…. Levity not a word for poking fun at!!……….As for cats why would anyone want a room big enough to swing one in? Ti’s a strange world we live in.
