THE HORSE

by

Meindert Jan van Wijk


Through centuries long forgotten
The beginning conquest of mankind
Only possible, thanks to the horse.

Many conquistadors world famous
Claimed victories over enemies
Only possible, thanks to me Horse.

All traveling, work and even mail
Over long and distant places
It happened only thanks of the horse.

Always being, the steady servant
Never losing his free spirit
They always being number One, the horse.

What would be now, if mankind
Without his speed and strength
That is not to be forgotten

Never forget, mankind would still be walking
Not reaching this far over the world.
Don't forget, it is thanks to the Horse.
