A Message From Sea Bisquit - Poem by Josette Lager

From the very start I was
put together funny I looked
part quarter horse. My legs
were too short and my head
was too big but I did ok for

Its true what they said about
me, when you looked into the
faces of the men and women
of the depression era you saw
me, your perfect icon your
representative.I looked alot
like you and you looked alot
like me. Hey Yip, I love the
song you wrote, hey I'm runnin'
today make sure to bet a C note
brother can you spare a dime?

Now grant you I wasn't a hot shot
primadonna like War Admiral or
Ligaroti, oh go stuff yourself with

Old War Admiral that high priced
plug I could get his goat every time
and I do confess I did light up like
a christmas tree every time he
came sash shaying by, it was
the competition in me but I did
ok for myself.

Josette Marie Louise Lager
