Horse Sense 2

Professor, therapist, author and poet.

"Horse race" is a very close contest
where opponents vie for the prize.
Competition must bring out the best
performances that can arise.

"Horse color" is a clear distinction
between different points of view.
Conditioned response meets extinction
as choices are drawn to construe.

"Horse power" is less safe in motors
than in the named species to thrive.
Ungoverned might of huge loaders
propel the vehicles we drive.
