A Horse Caused my Divorce

A Horse Caused my Divorce

I loved my ex-wife, and I planned to stay the course
But our marriage fell apart because of a horse
My horse is a 'snuggler,' a great comforting source
But when I brought her to bed, my wife took recourse

If my wife had just worked on her snuggling technique
I would not have turned to my beloved, Dominique
Nothing compares to her cute cuddly physique
Yet, my ex called me- "a sick, equine fetish freak!"

That was uncalled for! I simply could not endorse
My ex coming between me and my snuggly horse 
We made room in the bed, but she still chose divorce
Enough said! I'm going to bed! I have no remorse

Hey J!  Thanks!  I just wanted to post something different that shows that I have a sense of humor.  I heard horses are great cuddlers and worthy of causing a divorce to get a good night's sleep...lol  xo ;)

Lol..Thanks Wilford!  I am always doing more serious love poems, and thought I would show my funnier side.  I would cuddle with a  horse and probably sleep better than I ever have too.  I am glad you get my sense of humor.  xo ;)

Now, excuse me for saying so, but this is not " THE " COD " FATHER " trilogy motif !! How, on this earth is sleeping with another species, entirely, any " thing " BUT,.... "  FISHY !!! " :) :) :) 
There is decency to consider, you know. Well, actually, you do not, my dear. At least, at the very least, you did not enter " FOWL " territory. That, would be too much for any " HEART " to take !!! :) :)
It is in the notion of standard practice, within this " industry ", that we share " MORE " of ourselves. But, there is a limit, you know. Do not tell, me, that your love of "EQUINE "  got the better of you. May I presume to say, and I will, if you do not mind, that there is " metaphoric symbolization " taking effect. The " HORSE " can be seen as one of your own CIRCLE, giving you outlandish, and nightmarish, misconceptions. :)
DO NOT BE " FOOLED " AGAIN. Listen to the music, here and now, to work out where you stand, and " FALL " short !!! Falling Down, the film, different from BASIC INSTINCT, reflects your pedigree. Rather than " signs of hyper-tension " !!! :) Were you having the " DAY OFF " ? When you wrote this, a CONFUSING MESSAGE FOR " OFF-SPRING " !!!! :) Do not tell me you were not. I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT.
It is in " THE NATURE " of " THINGS " that we discover who the " friends " and " fiends " are. This is a " shake-down ", not a " touch-down " !!! You naughty, naughty " dollop " !!!! :) :)  At least , at the very least, I now know, for sure, you cannot be a " TROLLOP " !!! :) :) ( Get the hint !! )
I ask you, who would consider that ?  !!! :) :) :) 
Despite all there is, I wish you better. Much better, may I say.
TAKE CARE, OF YOURSELF. AS WELL AS OTHERS.
You should then be all right. If you take this suggestion, on board. :) :)  !!!

Hi Richard...You sure know a lot of movies and references....lol!  I just wanted to do something different and funny.  I love horses, and I found the silly picture and thought it would make a cute story to write about. I am not sure what you are suggesting but I always appreciate your thoughts.  You take care of yourself too...love n hugs, xo

" REFERENCE POINTS. " " SOURCE MATERIAL. " " EXAMPLES SET. " Personality, and character traits, reflecting your moral base and principled relevance, are assessed using events and occasions which you influenced. Your life story " REFLECTS ON YOU. " It is in action and deed that you show what you are about, and what governs your profile.
It is in " choice selection " ( NATURAL SELECTION !!! :) ) that you determine a persons worth. In everything you do, you are setting the " tone " of how you are perceived.
You choose to write about sleeping with animals so comfortably that it causes me to wonder from what source or sources ( " where ? and why ? " ) such ideas originate. You have to accept the consequences of your actions. Readers might assume that you prefer the intercession of other species into your personal space for the " WRONG " reasons. :) :) WHATEVER, THEY MAY BE.
I care for you. I do not wish to see you hurt by allegations of certain abnormal behaviourial patterns, born of loneliness, " stemming " from sadness, dictated by events beyond everyday control. A " STALKER " might follow you. Intent on " rural pursuits " !! :) YOU, SHOULD KNOW WHAT I MEAN BY THAT. Surely ?
Please protect yourself by careful selection of deed. Do not fall prey to WILD WAYS others may find hard to comprehend. " JUST SAYING " !!! :) :) Present yourself as an ambassador, of mainstream life, and " homo sapien love ", not pandering to MINORITY INTERESTS. Do not be " easily led " by others, for goodness sake.
Take care, of yourself, and those who actually mean something to you. Those, who want to see you do it all, well !!! :) :) That, would help. WOULD IT NOT ?
Be honest with yourself. LISTEN TO YOUR HEART.  :) :) People, will respect that, you know.
GET INVOLVED IN LIFE. As we, know it. :) :) :) !!

Hi Richard. In no way do I have abnormal thoughts of animals or some strange behavior with them, I assure youthat this piece was meant to be comedic and simply about hugging a sweet little foal for comfort and causing his wife to be jealous to the point of divorce...It was meant to be humorous and not in ANY  way about bestiality or abuse or a twisted sexual reference.  I wanted to do something different on  Cosmo to show my diversity...that I can be funny.  I like hugging my dog when I take a nap on the sofa, and this is just an extension of that kind of bond .  I take to heart every single comment I receive. and I would never want to offend anyone....Just expressing myself poetically.  I stand behind everything I write.  I will always respect you, Richard, and i know you speak out of concern and care.  But I was just wanting to do a comedy, and in no way does this poem imply a deviation from homo sapien love, or have that intent.  It is simply a comedy about a man wanting to get a good night's sleep, and his horsey friend helps him to feel safe and comfortable...Just as some people sleep with stuffed animals,...his is just real!  lol  Love n Hugs, xo

I refer you to MONTY PYTHON. Particularly, the comic sketch about the gentleman who takes his pet, a cuddly better-looking ( in his eyes ) LAMB for treatment !!!! The ensuing conversation between vetinary surgeon, nothing like James Herriot ( " VETS IN A SPIN " ), and this man, infers sexual-relations. You, have to accept the territory you have entered, considering this....properly.
TAKE CARE.

Hi Leah...Thank you!  It is so nice to see you!  I am glad that you got my sense of humor.  I love horses, and when I saw that picture on Google of this guy hugging his foal, I thought it was so cute and had to come up with a story for it...Thank you for your kind support. xo ;)  Love n Hugs

Cheerie! You're awesome! 
I love your playful side! You have a wonderful, romantic heart(from reading all of your other gems), and now, I see, you have an awesome sense of humor! My g*sh, you are so great! I really enjoyed that! 
Hey, I'm not sure what ummm...some other people may be sqwawking about, but you keep writing funily, it's wonderful! I write about chickens, and yaks, yet I've never actually met one, and it's just in fun, and it's just awesome stuff. 
Yikes, if we can't kid, we can't live. 
Awesome write! 
Love your sense of humor! And you're probably the nicest, most 'normal' people I've ever met, so please keep writing fum(and your romantic ones, too), because you're a perfect combination of an awesome person!! 
Love, 
Matthew.

Hey Matthew!  I just KNEW you would get my sense of humor...I mean, I have read all your yak poems and chicken poems and seen that you have a wicked sense of humor that makes me laugh. I wanted to showt that I have different aspects to my writing. I certainly DO enjoy writing the more romantic genre poems and it comes natural to me to write about what emotionally inspires me. But I do love to laugh and cut up...and I am glad you like my playful side too.  Thanks for all your support.  xo ;)  Cheerie

Oh, you're amazing, Cheerie. Please write more wacky ones, too. I sometimes cuddle with a large herring after a long day of fishing, so I don't see what the issue is. KIDDING!! Please don't attack me, people. 
You are a brilliant writer, in any form, and I've discovered your book, The Healing Touch, on Amazon, and it's amazing! I think everyone should read it, it's sooooo well written. I love to read, and am so glad I caught it. 
OK, back to my hens. 
Great, funny, awesome. Keep it up. 
Love, 
Matthew.

Thank you, M, for being so supportive...I never considered a herring to cuddle with because of their long bills...I figured it would be an accident waiting to happen with me...lol.  

I am honored that you purchased my book, and that you are reading it. Thank you!  I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. That is motivating since I am working on my next book, "The Magic Dagger" and hoping it will be even better than my first novel.  You are such a kind friend, Matthew to support me the way you do.  That really motivates me to keep writing.  Thank you!  ;)    xo

Well, Cheerie, it is really difficult to support you, because despite the fact that you're the nicest person ever, and your writing is phenomenal, and you're smarter than a yak with a degree in quantum physics, you do...shoot! I can't think of any faults! Well, you're welcome, and your book is fantastic so far(I'm about a third of the way through), and I can't wait until the next one! What's that one about? 
Please keep writing, forever. 
XOXOXO, 
Matthew.

You're welcome, Cheerie, but I'm just truly a big fan. There's a lot to your book(I'm savoring it slowly, so I don't miss anything), but it has many layers, and great themes, and it could be read by adults, and loved on one level, or by kids, because it has tremendous meaning in both ways. I love writing like that! It's very intelligent, and entertaining. You have to be really talented to write that way, so hats off to you, young lady, and Cosmo's, you should read this! (Note: And I am not Cheerie's advertising department, I just think you'll really enjoy it, and you know how nice she is, so it will make her happy, which will make us all elated). Sorry for the unabashed plug, Cheerie, but you deserve it. 

L&H, 

M.

I SHOULD hire you to do my advertising, because you seem to truly believe in me and that makes for the best promotion.  I am so excited that you think my book would appeal to adults and children....I have heard many adults tell me that they liked it and it surprised me.  But it is very validating.  Bless you...xo  ;)

You really should, because I do believe in your writing, but I'm very expensive. It would cost you several tacos a month, and a signed copy of all of your books. Deal? 
Gesundheit!

Ah!  That's cheap!  I love tacos, and so that would be no problem to toss a few your way.  Not sure what the value is in me signing books for you...but that would be okay too....Deal!  ;) xo

Alright! I'm hired! Ummm...can I have tomorrow off? I'm having my pants altered. Thanks Boss!! You're the best!

And I just need an advance of $11,383,284.16 to pay my tailor. Thanks! 
And some sqwackle.

;(  I knew there would be a catch...Nothing in life is free and comes with a "I gotcha clause"....Darnit!  I always forget to read the small print, because I cannot see the small print...lol  How about I just write you a check?  Don't cash it for about 50 years though... xo ;)

No, no catches! Just kidding. However, I am going to insist on one smile(if it's not too much trouble), that would be worth much more than that little sum of money. Deal?? 
And that sqwackle...but that's it...and this paddle ball game(did you ever see that movie The Jerk, with Steve Martin? lol. 'All I need is this ashtray...and that's it...and this paddle ball game...and that's it...and this remote control...' 
Anyway, it's amusing when you see it! LOL.). 
OK, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, so I'm going...and I don't need anything...except for this sqwackle...lol. You're strange, Cheerie...KIDDING, I'm strange, you just put up with  me! lol. 

L&H,

Thank you!! 
It's actually a compliment when someone calls you a goofball, and the word originates from an old, Latin/ Spanish term, 'pelota loopito' meaning ball loopy...and...I think that's good...in Russia. Does that make sense?? Thank you! I thought so. 
Anyway, I appreciate it, and you know you can purchase Sqwackle from your local 'Big Lots' store, don't you? It's relatively inexpensive(if you buy it in quantities of 700 lbs. or larger, so you might want to pick some up. Thanks! 
(and I'm the pelota loopito! LOL). ; )
You're awesome!!!

Cheerie, 
You're wonderful, and if anyone thinks anything wrong about this funny, sweet, little vignette, then they know absolutely NOTHING about you, and the remarkable person you are(see above). Maybe the people on here who know what a kind, God-loving, sweet person you are, realize that you didn't even THINK about that aspect of 'unorthodox animal behavior', because you don't think that way! So, please don't even think about what other people say, because it was cute, and funny, and I didn't even think about that at all, because I know you're wonderful! My gosh!(sorry about the language). 
Anyway, I think God loved it, and laughed at it, and we all think you're great on here! 
Love, 
Matthew.

Thank you, Matthew...I would never mean to offend anyone....I just love cute cuddly critters, especially horses, and wanted to do something funny.....a different genre...I was not wanting to sound like I was promoting bestiality or anything.....just cuddling and how important that was to this man in his marriage...lol  I am glad you thought it was funny.  Thank you!  I do appreciate how supportive you are and know me....xo :)  Love n Hugs

You're so welcome, Cheerie, and I think anyone who has seen your beautiful writing, and wonderful, kind comments, knows how far from those thoughts your mind was. Silly! And keep being silly, because you're great.

My Dear Cherie,

My wife chose to divorce me, for I loved my horsey so;
She said, "Either you get rid of her, or I am going to go"!
I tried explaining it all to her, relying on her "Horse Sense";
But she could not understand it, her mentality was too dense!

.
So I've just signed all the papers, that legalize our divorce;
She left me out of jealousy, for my beautiful female horse!
But I've healed very quickly, an equine lover have I met;
I know she'll be my next wife, eternity our love kept!

All my love,
Larry xxx

Lol...I like your version better....There is just something irresistible  about a a cuddly horse.  I don't blame the guy.  My blood pressure lowers just being around horses in the field.  I wanted to do something different and try my hand in comedy.  I am so happy that you get it...Thanks, Larry. xo  Love n Hugs to you and Linda.
