The Cow

Updated on August 4, 2014

The Mad Cow


The Cow

by Jeb Bensing 2013

It was unlike any other morning for the boy.
His frustration was expressed so loud.
That boy shot the arrow up into the sky and,
That arrow had flown through the cloud.
The boy watched with squinting eyes as,
That arrow continued to fly.
After a few moments,
That arrow changed the boy’s life.
It ended up hitting the cow!
Not the cow who tried to jump over the moon.
It was the cow just a few yards away.
The boy lives on a farm and,
They can be seen from his bedroom window every day.

Oh! That cow looked so mad!
The cow was just relaxing over by the hay,
When that arrow changed all that was good,
Into all that was bad in just one day.

From behind that boy a voice could be heard.
Like a soft breeze that passed his ear,
His Pa said, “Oh! Wee Lad, trouble is now coming your way!”
Now the boy didn’t have to worry about his Dad,
He had to worry about that Cow!
That cow looked really mad!

Don’t worry about the cow,
The arrow just missed her you know what and,
The arrow hit the cow in the tail.
You would have to worry about the boy.
He was the one who ruined that fine day.
The boy had bad aim and,
Was lucky the cow wasn’t maimed.
Just when you thought it was OK,
It’s never good to relax next to a barrel of hay.

      Thank you very much. Way back when I was a Presschool Teacher, my three-year olds love stories.
