The Purple Cow


I NEVER SAW A PURPLE COW,
I NEVER HOPE TO SEE ONE;
BUT I CAN TELL YOU, ANYHOW,
I'D RATHER SEE THAN BE ONE!

    This is more like a quote than a poem, but I love it. I remember when I was younger someone said this and I was huh. There isn't no such thing as a purple cow. (Report) Reply

    I don't know who you are but you BETTER take this poem down. This poem was written by my girlfriend StarLover from Creative-Poems many years ago...

    I can't stand a person that would STEAL other work and post it as his own...
    Take it down or prepare to be banned FOREVER!
