What is this I see with a whinny? 
Maybe its new maybe its old. 
What could it be? 
I'm not sure, but very interesting this thing I see. 
Could time be this pure? 
I just realized that its something. 
Something with hooves just like me. 
Thoughts in my mind ring, 
What could it be? 
What is our purpose? 
Why are we here as I canter near, 
What is our need, 
Said this wonderful stead? 
I don't know but I like life's 
meaningful purpose.
