A racing certainty

I've broken my leg
and you want me dead,
neigh, that is blooming nonsensical.
To shoot a racehorse
without any remorse.
morally, it's indefensible.

Red Card

The card was red,
it had to be,
he broke his leg
in places, three.

The challenge reckless,
no intent,
stupid, feckless,
no harm meant.

Result was clear,
the match was lost,
the lad's career
a heavy cost.
