There is both fear and defiance in this horse's eye, but why?
The horse was NOT scared I’m a war horse and nobody messes me with me Not even aliens who think they’re big and hard! Or so the horse defiantly thought Well he also thought he was a horse but but but…
The horse was actually a spaceship! Low and behold in all his glory A real spaceship that was in space To venture between the stars And he was horse shaped.
But was made of aerospace grade materials That was mined from distant asteroids And built into a starship in a factory That orbited Neptune for ease of use For cosmic exploration and so more.
The horse shaped space vessel was big Many miles high and across and heavy Like the heaviest metal played by Compressorhead Or mined from the most lucrative asteroid Powered by fusion drive and ion engines.
Armed with triple laser cannon arrays For defence against meteors and alien craft Like now that were ready for war! Zap! Zap! Zap! went the lasers guns. Boom boom boom went the alien craft.
And Yahoo! whinnied the horse craft As he became master of the galaxy And unleashed war of the worlds Thus dooming the entire universe To violence and darkness if aliens won.
But a million horse shaped spaceships Were being built in deep space Up-gunned with undreamt of weapons And uprated engines and other toys Thus guaranteeing galactic horse victory.
There was no need for a human crew Machines and robots took over Ensuring a flawless capacity for success As a hundred thousand ships sped off To impose equine discipline in space.
