On Wings of Kingsby Diane Ludeking On Wings of Kings A racehorse I once knew The trainer’s daughter’s horse So black, he was blue On race day he is all piss and vinegar From the barn, along the winding path To the track and into the paddocks I would endure his wrath No sign of letting up Lathered with sweat even before the tack He’d toss his head and try to break my nose Desire to reach the gates, he did not lack Up goes the jockey I hand them to the pony dancer Off they go into the distance For their pre-race canter Into the gates The bell rings The gates open Go, On Wings of Kings! Out of the gates first Rarely a winner’s move He takes flight across the vastness He’s found his groove Around the last turn Still in first I hope that He is not cursed He wins, he wins! On Wings of Kings Does the impossible On fairytale wings
