Sarah Watkinson – Faithful Servant

Faithful Servant

 

Ride? I don’t think so. They’re only here as her cronies

 

All they want is to chatter, like kids on ponies

 

Ignoring me. Lucky I’m trained, I relax.

 

Slack-reined, the passengers scratch each others’ backs

 

Ambling like toffs in Rotten Row on hacks.

 

 

 

 

(An acrostic by Raisa, the retired police horse owned by Rebekah Brooks and lent to David Cameron to ride.)
