“Carpe Diem”, the Romans say. I hear it means to “seize the day”,
But, I must say it my own way --
You see, I clean my stalls each day, and keep them nice and neat,
For it keeps the flies away, and keeps hoof rot from
my horses’ feet.
So, as I’m shoveling each day,
I say the Roman phrase in my own way .
I guess this saying’s here to stay --
