...about 'beating a dead horse'...
I'm crying for a pore dead horse;
It's horse abuse - it's coarse, or worse!
Would you abuse a passing hearse?
Of course it seems excessive force.
I'm crying for the pore man next
Who has to thrash that dead-beat horse
Upon the merest light pretext
Or else for nothing, what is worse.
- Poor horse! Poor man!
I'd rather not see than be either one,
It isn't in my plan.
