HORSES AND CARTS

 

 

An idiom which I can’t endorse:

‘Don’t put the cart before the horse’

for what this overlooks of course

is that I do not own a horse

and on my cart there are no wheels

as close inspection soon reveals

and even if this wasn’t so

the road down which I seek to go

is closed all access now denied

so tell me why I’m not surprised.
