No is wont to moo for you,
Forsooth, I asked one to today,
O Cow, said I, wouldst thou to moo?
To my dismay she said but Nay.
And then asked I, Art equine thou?
And answered she, But bovine be.
So I replied, Then thou art cow!
But once again just Nay! said she.
I must confess — thou dost confuse —
Thou canst be cow if hast not moos —
Then thou art something else of course...
Alas, she said, I am an horse!
