The Het Up Vet
by Alice B. Clagett

This account is entirely fictional.

There once was a vet
Who began to feel that
He had too many cows on his docket

I have it! He stated
Since cash flow's abated
I’ll try out a new line of profit

And so he ablated
That work he hated.
In favor of work that . . . The hospit-

-al blues …
Mercy me! Made the news

That vet had a profit
That couldn’t be crop-ped

Stop it! … Awe but!
Them that knows it, just drop it!

The dickens, you say!
I could bellow all day
‘Bout the vet who transformed his meal ticket

Yup. The hospit-
-al blues were front page news
For the vet with moolah to deposit
