WISHES

if wishes were horses,

Beggars would ride,

That is what I’ve heard,

But what of the horses?

What would they wish for?

If beggars were horses,

What then?

Would they all gallop free

unbridled and unhampered?
Would there be no beggars?

Just a multitude of horsoes

standing around on street corners

Asking for a quarter for a

pail of oats?
