An old horse was carrying
heavy load through the wood
wheezing and moving very slow
doing the best it could


Helping the horse to pull
tired man with rickety cart
heard sound of galloping hooves
and envy filled his heart


Why G-d deny to me
a cart fast and new
I worship you every day
nothing else I can do


While he was still upset
heard a voice crying out
save me from these murderers
man had no more doubt


A horse can run fast
we don't have to plead
for others to spare us
G-d gives what we need



Inspired by Tehillim 33:17
