The Stallion's Parable... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr...FjR

In observing th' capriole... of a spirited stallion,
did I...

One Sunday afternoon, 'pon th' grounds of a manege,
sat 'an mused...

That if an animal could negotiate such complexities,
why, then...

Can't we, as intelligent life employ our Good-Sense
of Reason...

And, of Logic in addressing our own complexities, as-
one people...

People, sharing th' same earth and seed, sewing lives,
and destinies...

By behaving with no less class than th' spirited horse
I observed one Sunday, upon the grounds of a manege,
negotiating a capriole with an air of Logic 'n Reason-
despite the complexities it dealt with all by itself.
