Gwen Petersen: In a Sow’s Ear 4-22-13
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. ❖
