The Cows of Houston


Everywhere in downtown Houston the cows do pose
Extremely eyecatching in colors sometimes rare
They stand or are in bright repose
Looking as if with someone to share
A question or two as to why they are there

Cows of all descriptions, lifesize in design
Multicolored, multicultural cows these
Trying the others to outshine
They pose as though your imagination to tease

Butterfly cow of brilliant hue
The Mexically cow of black
There's an Elvis look alike cow, true!
I mean all kinds of cows, Jack!

What are all these cows doing on Houston square?
No religious sentiment apparently to share
No, there seems not to be even a Hindu sacred cow
So what is all that beef doing there now?

Fundraising is the aim
For the Children's Hospital there
Money is the game
Want a part of a cow to share?

The Cows of Houston (c)2001 Quentin Clingerman
