A donkey’s tale


A Donkey’s Tale

By Craig Stellpflug

One fine day a child, a donkey and an old man

Rose up very early and a journey began

They packed their lunch and started walking down the road

And upon the donkey’s back the little child rode

But when they passed the parson he began to chide

“Why is it upon the donkey the child does ride”?

“For the road is long and an old man will soon tire”.

“Let the youth walk, it will not hurt him to perspire!”

It’s not right to argue with priests in such cases

So they took his kind advice and exchanged places

So now the old man rode while the child was walking

As they went on their way just merrily talking

Then they came upon the butcher man in the way

“Shouldn’t you both be walking”? He began to say

It’s better for your health to get some exercise

So they both carried out what the butcher did advise

Before long they met the seamstress who did declare

“Why are you both walking with a donkey right there”?

“He’s a beast of burden, he can carry the load”!

So upon the donkey’s back the both of them rode

But they came across the mayor who cried aloud

“This is abuse”! He said as he gathered a crowd

“Donkey’s have rights, you ought to be ashamed”! He said

“Furthermore, you should carry that donkey instead”!

So they carried the donkey as a bridge they crossed

The donkey struggled and over the side was lost

The bridge was high and the ravine was deep and wide

And at the bottom of it all the donkey died

I know this story is really sad but it’s true

I tell you this so it doesn’t happen to you

Don’t be like the old man or this will come to pass

If you try to please everyone you will lose your ass
