Pferd

The horse was a peaceful creature

living free upon the plains

Until once they were subjected

to the bridle and the reins

When men had found them useful

to a purpose more malign

They were made unwitting players

to some sinister design

From Pizarro at Cajamarca

and many more since then

The horse employed as weapon

to enslave all lesser men

What could have been for many

instead advantaged only few

Living things or flying machines

for the evil that men do

They shoot horses, don’t they?

Yes, usually in the head,

but would that they should all grow thumbs

and they shoot man instead
