But What About the Horse?

Bedecked with finery
Colors of the rainbow
or some flag that held
meaning to knights five
hundred years ago, people

just like us, but yet, so
Why wallpaper a horse
then ride it directly
into a trident

with three tiny points,
more useful for cocktail
shrimp than Poseidon,
King of the sea

Hark, a spirit rises.
Whether it is the betrothed
of the unseated
or perhaps their own
soul knocked loose

by the cocktail shrimp trident
or perhaps it be an un-
fortunate stain on the canvas
an errant mark of the
honest sweat from
the artist's brow

With great fanfare we
welcome thee
