(Aka But The Cow Came Back, this was an amusing little poem I tapped out a while back. Rough? Well, it all is. Hopefully a sweeter version will appear in a future Filmic Cut. Hope you enjoy. OJ)

 

The Farmer had a cow

But he didn’t want it

He managed to get rid

But the cow came back

.

So he sold it to his friend

Who took it away

And the Farmer was pleased

But the cow came back

.

So he shipped it off

Across the world’s seas

With a one way ticket

But the cow came back

.

The Farmer threw up his hands

And decided to move away

To a brand new farm

But the cow came back

.

He tricked it with grass

And swiftly ran far

He thought he was safe

But the cow came back

.

In a fury, he got an axe

And chopped the cow to bits

And buried them in a field

But the cow came back

.

So he pulped it up

And made it into meat

And ate it all up

But the cow came back

.

With a final effort

The Farmer got some bombs

And blew the beast up

But the cow came back

.

So the Farmer killed himself

And ascended to Heaven

Happy among the angels

But the cow came back

.

So he went to Hell

Got prodded by demons

To suffer eternal torment

Because the cow came back
