A poem sample from Mr. Cheeks-Too-Soft.




Five bucks read the for-sale tag.

I am not one to continuously nag.

It is a bit much for an old hag.

For profusely its belly does sag.


I will offer you one dollar for this old roan.

At this point in time it is just skin and bone.

I am able to give it a barn made of stone.

He is lonely, do you not hear him moan?


Everyday I will take him for a ride.

Over logs and hedges we will glide.

I will teach him to trot a gallant stride.

With heads high, we will ride with pride.


Will you look at those big sad eyes liquefy.

Any moment now he just may start to cry.

For days no one was willing to buy.

I have one dollar and I am your guy.


This honest to goodness horse trader I do endorse.

Accepting a five-year-old kid’s bid, I have no remorse.

You win young cowboy, a done deal of course.

Partner, saddle up your antique hobby horse.
