North Side Of A Horse

Updated on August 10, 2013
Source


I awoke, my head throbbin’

And remembered, Oh Lord

I had been drinkin’

I wanted more sleep

But was aware something was wrong

When I pulled the sheet up to my neck

And realized they were panties

Oh God, what was I thinkin’

I turned to look and sure enough

Laying by my side, on her elbows winkin'

With a red puckered mouth,

She looked just like

The north side of a horse going south

Even her tangled mane

Swished flies from her face

I attempted to flee

But my arm was caught ‘neath her

Escape was futile so I bellowed a scream

And woke myself realizing

It was only a dream

I was awash in relief but then felt something stir

So I moaned, oh no, and my heart was a shrinkin’

But to my surprise, up popped the most beautiful gal

Who took one look at me and moaned

Oh Lord, what was I thinkin’

      Funny you mention this Sir Wayne I was thinkin' the same thing when I saw this picture ...... lol lol lol, oh never mind. lol

      Gotta say you are definitely in Epi's territory when you write something like this but then again when I write something like this I often think of my buddy WB, lol , so that just goes to show you , great minds truly do think alive and now this is my lullaby, and I am going back to bed.

      Although you have greatly inspired me with this piece so you know what that means - I may have to come up with a poetic reply , lol.

      Sending you warm wishes as I watch the sunrise over the lake and how life affirming is that.

      Funny, Wayne! Last night I dreamed I had sex with Brad Pitt (seriously!). I sure hope he didn't wake up saying the same thing!
