A Disqualified Jockey's Story

Rating: 2.7
You see, the thing was this way -- there was me,
That rode Panopply, the Splendor mare,
And Ikey Chambers on the Iron Dook,
And Smith, the half-caste rider on Regret,
And that long bloke from Wagga -- him that rode
Veronikew, the Snowy River horse.
Well, none of them had chances -- not a chance
Among the lot, unless the rest fell dead
Or wasn't trying -- for a blind man's dog
Could see Enchantress was a certain cop,
And all the books was layin' six to four.

A great horse play narrative. The unfairness carries on and on and on people preferring their own to win.

A poem that shows corruption never goes away it hides in dark corners for there is always someone ready to pay? .....well written.
