Of all the farmyard animals,
The best by far are cows,
I love them to the limit that,
Our British law allows.

Cows are oh so versatile,
You get meat and milk and leather,
Pigs and sheep give some of these,
But not all three together.

The British cow is lovely,
She is gentle, warm and kind,
She chews the cud at one end,
And at the other...never mind.

So if you want an animal,
That you can eat and drink and wear,
Then get yourself a little cow,
Or better still a pair.
