Betting On Horses (limerick)

At racetrack when placing a bet

Some things I will never forget

Does jockey have force

How wet is the course

And hooves does the horse have a set

(Oh you, who got a picture of a hoofless horse; like me.)

This is very clever indeed; I had to stop and think about it before laughing.

You also need

A horse with speed

And burning desire

To be first at the wire.

I admit, I had to think about it before I could laugh too and I'm only sharing that because I see billybuc had similar troubles! lol... Funny, now that I get it... I think ;-)

Clever indeed. Sometimes the best ones give one pause to think before a laugh.
