Empty Jerry Cans

Rating: 5.0

There had been a war; there is always a war someplace,
both the opposing armies ran out of petrol, so they used
animals that could carry supply and weapon on their
backs, donkeys, mules and horses were preferred, they
are more pliant and used to slavery.

Also reindeers were tried, but with limited success,
could only be used in the north, in the Middle East

were impossible to tame they refused to be a casualty

of a war they had nothing to do with them.
