Cows on the horizon;

Here the land is ancient bumps and slopes,

And everywhere

We are surrounded by its hills.


Back home, the land is flat,

and its horizon stretches for kilometres

In every direction;

You see no cows.


This evening, Joe sat in the pub

With his habitual pint of Guinness,

And talked with ages old

About the horizon


That he sees every day

From his English tractor;

Spoke, with knowledge, of the horizon

That the Sassenach and the Yanks claim in Qatar.
