The Goats

We NAMED the goats...they were our FRIENDS...
They kept the 'hillside'....CLEAN!
We'd turn them out...they'd follow us....
Not obstinate....or mean.

Just loyal 'pets'...who'd lick your hand
Or nibble at your coat;
Their ONLY fault...(that I could see)...
They ALWAYS...smelled like GOATS!

The house is gone...and in its stead....
A NICER place....to see....
But a view of that OLD...homeplace
Would sure look good....to ME.

The hillside's like a jungle...now,
And if I had a vote,
Id say, "Repair the fences
And get a HERD of goats!"

But NOW the 'city' has a 'say'...
"NO LIVESTOCK ON THAT LAND!"
They pass the laws...and make the folks
Succumb to THEIR demands.

The 'eyesore'...of THAT hillside
SHOULD rock the Mayor's 'boat'....
But everyone...seems happy
If they can't....smell a goat!
