A Lot of Bull?

I'm running out of pets. Could milk cows serve as pets? There is PET milk . . .

Cows, Cows

Cows are quite cowardly creatures,
and they never feel shame for that.
It's the best of their endearing features,
since they'd otherwise trample us flat!

But a male cow won't cow, might some say,
to which I would loudly cry, "Bull!"
There is no such beast, might I nay
say, though Meinong's odd jungle be full.

I used to call "Hereford" bulls "heifer" bulls. The two words sound similar in Ozark dialect.

Ah, yes... the way "lawyer" and "liar" sound about the same in an Aussie dialect. How apropos.

I only figured it out when I saw the spelling.

(No interest in my horse poem?)

I'm a bit slow on the uptake, and I don't always comment on every post. Mea maxima culpa. For what it's worth, I just left a comment on the horse-poem post.

Thanks. I thought the horse poem was one of my better attempts. But you don't have to comment on every post - our situation is not as if you owe me any comments.
