A little light humour…

The horse and mule live 30 years
And nothing know of wines and beers
The goat and sheep at 20 die
With never a taste of scotch or rye
The cow drinks water by the ton
And at 18 is mostly done
The dog at 16 cashes in
Without the aid of rum or gin.
The cat in milk and water soaks
And then in 12 short years it croaks
The modest, sober bone dry hen
Lays eggs for nogs then dies at ten
All animals are strictly dry –
They sinless live and swiftly die
But sinful, ginful, rumsoaked men
Survive for three score years and ten
And some of us though mighty few
Stay pickled till we’re 92.
