Haberdash.

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)



The intolerant wild stallion
had all but given up
Its battle hit him a good en
A bitter type of cup
Scratching the hedges
Splashing the earth
Winning the races
What was it worth
Free though in mind
A Savannah turf
Layed out before him
His teardrops his surf
Whiter the spirit
Higher the jump
No more the whip
No longer the limp
