Horse Rhyme

by Rex Miller

I do this deed
with lightening speed
for I have freed
a wondrous steed
of noble breed
so I can lead
his healthy creed
down there to feed.

I was not told
that too behold
something this bold
will take a hold
and then unfold
an equine gold.


The Ant and Me

by Rex Miller

I opened up my palm to see an ant
waving all his arms in such a rant.
Bending close, to my surprise, I heard a voice,
it seemed this little ant he had no choice.
I don't know why I left the path and then
my giant feet had trampled on his den.
The little ant explained they'd built a nest
but now a crumpled mess he must protest.

Deep down I knew my feet had done me wrong
when walking where I just did not belong
if only I had stayed upon the path
this ant might be at home sat in the bath.
I felt so sorry for this little chap
I took him home and sat him on my lap
then once asleep I placed him on my bed
and even let him cuddle up to ted,
I knew right then the ant and me were friends
I hoped a life with me might make amends.
