A billy goat with a yellow beard
Came to me and called me weird
But said I, unlike thee
Upon my face I do not pee!

Billy Goat did think a while
and on his yellow beard did suck
And then a strange, capricious smile
and spat on me. That cheeky buck!

A hole in the fence for the geese alone,
but the Billy goat did smile,
with a turn of his head, his horns lead through,
been in the orchard now a while.

I shook my head, and cleared my throat,
while Billy munched on grass
but when I turned my head, that goat
knocked me on my ass.

I might just miss that billy goat;
If so, its my own fault.
But with a fork and knife in hand,
will someone pass the salt?

And after time went 5 months hence
another billy climbed the fence
The dam in corner chewed her cud
as Billy landed with a thud
and took a fall
Says I my freezer is still sated
my knife so sharp however mated
to pairs of interleg protrusion
and finds itself a last solution
to suit us all
 
Ever since I found this suit I've felt strange new needs. And a tiny ad:
