    Cows

    by David Knape

    Cows ain't so dumb
    just act that way
    they live to eat
    eat more each day
    the more they eat
    the more they weigh
    then make them pies
    draw flies that way

    They stand around
    get in the way
    when cars come down
    the old highway
    cars honk their horns
    they move away
    but take their time
    got all damn day

    Cows can kick
    get out the way
    if not then you'll
    have hell to pay
    some cows will gore you
    as you lay
    some ain't so dumb
    just act that way.
