Reader’s poem – Where, oh where has my cow gone?

Cow seen on Wharf Street this morning

Has anybody seen my cow?

It seems my cow has gone.

I kept it in my back garden where there’s only room for one.

I have spent all morning looking,

Well, not that long, you see

I only have a cow as a sign of my prosperity.

It escapes the yard quite often

But is usually back by night,

Having broken lots of fences and caused my neighbours fright.

Someone said it was on Wharf Street

But I don’t know if it’s mine.

It doesn’t carry branding just in case I get a fine.

And if it walks into traffic

And a motorist is dead

It’s not my friggin’ cow no more, it’s minister Nkwinti’s instead.
