The Cow

Two cows drinking water

The Cow is a bovine of that ilk,
That chews her cud, and gives her very best effort.
When you rub her large, wet nose,
It seems smooth as satin, I suppose.

Forgive me, if right on I do prattle,
About herds of Cows that we call cattle.
We keep them in pens so they will fatten,
But you won't find many in Manchester.

Happy Cows frolicing and dancing
