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.

The brown cow looks like wearing a white mask.
