THE HET UP VET
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
20 February 2018
There once was a vet
Who began to feel that
He had too many cows on his docket
I have it! He stated
Since cash flow’s abated
I’ll try out a new line of profit
And so he ablated
That work he hated.
In favor of work that . . . The hospit-
-al blues …
Mercy me! Made the news
That vet had a profit
That couldn’t be crop-ped
Stop it! … Awe but!
Them that knows it, just drops it!
The dickens, you say!
I could bellow all day
‘Bout the vet who transformed his meal ticket
Yup. The hospit-
-al blues were front page news
For the vet with moolah to deposit
