Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans!

Don't Let that Horse

Don't let that horse
                            eat that violin

  cried Chagall's mother

                                     But he
                  kept right on

And became famous

And kept on painting
                                 The Horse With Violin In Mouth
And when he finally finished it
he jumped up upon the horse
                                             and rode away
           waving the violin

And then with a low bow gave it 
to the first naked nude he ran across

And there were no strings 

--Lawrence Ferlinghetti
