Pipped at the Post

clipart image of a horse and jockey

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 17 September 2021, course.

Jockey’s leading the race at the track,
But his ride’s overtaken by pack,
For not staying the course,
He kicks out at the horse,
Which has good sense to kick him right back.
