Whew… this challenge asks us to write something, using the photo for inspiration, in only six minutes! (Give or take a tiny smidgen of time for edits.)
Once upon a time, in the land of Ney, a new invention ruined everyone’s day.
It was a box that broadcasted ‘what abouts?” filling the natives with suspicions and doubts.
It told them their color was their crowning glory and for everything else they ought to be sorry.
The black, the white, Pinto, and brown decided, right then, to adjust their own sound.
So, with notes all different, their lyrics lost rhyme and with all diverse beats and measures not one could keep time.
Oh, those differences lacked an orchestral blend, so the citizens cried for the commotion to end!
Two brave horsey guys, before too long, came together on one common song.
Together they made such a sweet melody, the equine society tossed out every TV.
Today on that planet those horseheads remain, happily singing one united refrain.

Great parody on how social media is influencing our views on race, as we all rush to our safe spaces. It seems horses are smarter then humans, and my equestrian granddaughter would agree with you entirely.
True! Thanks. That six-minute constraint makes ‘one get to the point’. lol
Susan, from one rhymer to another this is great! I love how you got it all in!
It took a moment of pre-thought. Thanks!
