Reining In Your Returns (Limerick)

A horseback-riding reader asked me to write a tax-related limerick. Here’s what I came up with:

Reining In Your Returns (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

To the folks who find horseback transcendent,
Please beware, you could be a defendant,
If when doing your tax,
You err to the max
By declaring your horse a “dependent.”

    Ah, how I wish I had a horse dependent
    Instead, I’m my puppy’s attendant
    She goes in the grass
    And slips out some gas
    So compared to that, my tax work’s transcendant

    I love limericks!
    I know a couple horse lovers who probably wish they could claim their “babies”!
