The Last Laugh

 I stopped my bike, to take a break
and far off I could see
a big brown cow eating grass
and sneaking peeks at me.

Another day I stopped again
and right there stood the cow
the nosy girl was wont to know
What I was doing and how.

I explained the best I could
City Daily Photo
She mooed and snorted and then she said
"I may be a cow but I'm not slow."

I got on my bike and rode on home
     but I got that old cow's photo  
 Perhaps someday a farmer boy
 will take her pic to her to show.  

That's when I'll come riding by 
and I'll yell at that ol' cow:
"Ha, ha, ha! You snooty beast 
Who's got the last laugh now?"

Creative poetry, and cows are always like that- at least one will want to see why some stranger's stopping and looking at them.

Your poem fit perfectly with your photos. Great effort on both.

The brown cow looks like wearing a white mask.
