    Any similarity between ponies past or present is purely coincidental, I am sure. *Looks around suspiciously*

    Pony in my Garden

    There's a pony in my garden and it's eating all the flowers
    Nonchalantly standing there; devouring them for hours
    Casually ignoring all the wind and rain and showers
    How I wonder whose the pony is that's eating all my flowers

    Mostly eating yellow flowers, but it also likes the blue
    Now I come to think of it, it eats the red ones too
    Truly doesn't seem to matter, all of them it chews
    At the rapid rate it's munching them, there'll soon be very few

    Why, I wonder, did the pony stroll into my lawn today?
    Maybe it's a little bored with eating only hay?
    Taking not the least bit notice to a word I say
    Like a sturdy tree that's rooted firmly; seems it's here to stay

    Does the pony have a name? If not, I think I'll call it Keith
    Should I find a bounder though, to nab this flower thief
    Disregarding all attempts to tempt it off with leaves
    Dare not try to prod it, for it's got some large and sturdy teeth

    Finally it stops it feasting and then wanders down the lane
    Striding off quite briskly with some petals in its mane
    Soon I think my garden's safe, but no! It's all in vain
    Looking out next morning I can see the pony back again

    Still I wonder whose the pony is that's eating all my flowers
    Every day it comes along and eats away for hours
    Nothing seems to put it off, not wind, nor rain nor showers
    There's a pony in my garden and it's eating all the flowers
    Akelay, Lully and Lina like this.

    Hmm.... what a naughty pony to eat all your flowers and leave none for the other ponies...

    I like this poem as much as me ponies like them flowers, erm.... it wasn't me!
