Yea or Nay

Y is for … Yea … Yoke ... Yell ... and Yesterday.

Yea or Nay

A filly who loved a good fight
Got hitched to a heel just for spite.
But that heavy yoke
Was never a joke,
So maybe her family was right.

He’d bicker and bellow and bray,
With never a sure “Yea” or “Nay.”
Unbridled, he kicked;
He pecked and he picked
And drove everybody away.

She wrestled with worries for years
And bathed in her barrels of tears.
Till one day she bucked,
Then packed up and trucked
And left with her laugh in his ears.
