Horsing around

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 it’s the pressure
the pressure that counts
as it mounts
the steed of expectation
and tis indeed
the speed
at which it pulls
the cart of hopes and desires
challenging the obstacles
clearing defences
galloping on, in the hope
that drays might out run
the thoroughbreds
that the shires
might ring
to the sound of success
that as teams jockey
for position
as the finishing tape approaches
who will romp home
at the end of the neigh?

Notes

a mixture of :

Tomorrow’s Grand National
The Rock of Gibraltar ownership dispute between Sir Alex Ferguson and John Magnier
An episode on tv of ‘Faking It’
A nursery rhyme!

And you thought it might be about Geoff Horsfield!
