Betting On Horses (limerick)

Updated on July 4, 2013

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.)

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

      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 ;-)

      You also need

      A horse with speed

      And burning desire

      To be first at the wire.

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