My favorite male is filled with charm.
I might tattoo him on my arm.
Why do I love him most, of course?
He bests all men, my little horse.
When e’re he sees me, he high-tails
To greet me and hear my regales.
Although he may not understand
He as a listener is grand.
No foul language does he speak,
Nor does his temper seem to pique.
Fidelity’s his strongest suit.
He’s gelded, so the point is moot.
Unlike most men a gal might know,
He cuddles with no quid pro quo.
This handsome one is strong and sure.
His macho ego is secure.
He smiles with ease for our close-ups
And never ever interrupts.
And with a little exercise,
This blessed beast may win a prize.
Of all the guys in all the earth,
One little horse renews his worth.
This bold bright equine is my dear.
As long as I shall have him here.
