An Equine Economy


A nationís economy is like a horse,

It needs care and feed and rest,

To maintain strength and resilience,

To perform itís very best.

 

A horse has to have enough to eat,

The same as any nation,

He needs industry to keep him sound,

To put the iron on his foundation.

 

Education and health care are essential,

Watch out for worms, ticks and fleas...

It donít take too many parasites,

To bring a good mount to his knees!

 

Sometimes a pony needs a breather,

You got to let him rest of course,

There aint nothing to be gained,

By whipping a worn out horse.
