Gwen Petersen: In a Sow’s Ear 4-22-13

Big Timber, Mont.

There once was a cowboy named Lester

Who shut himself up in a dresser.

He started to shout “Hey, let me out,

This feels like government sequester!”

There was a young lady named Esther

Who said she had never confessed

Her very bad deeds and obsessive needs,

So the Government had her sequestered.

There once a guy named Sylvester

In love with a woman named Hester.

But she proved untrue

Which made him feel blue

So he had poor Hester sequestered.

Jake was a sinful transgressor

He went to a father confessor

“I’ve lied and I’ve cheated,

My girl, I mistreated

Me, you we’ll have to sequester.”

There once was a cowboy named Chester

Who fell in love with a gal named Hester.

He asked her to marry, but she preferred Larry

So Chester gave Hester a rude gesture.

The cowboy felt himself blessed

But his horse was overly stressed

It became unruly and bucked like fury

You all know what happened next. ❖
