all the pretty ponies

kentucky at keeneland
thoroughbreds is full regalia

and the horses look lovely too
women in hats fine enough for the fairest lady
heels and barely there dresses
men in bow ties and plaid pastel blazers

their station in life on display

social climbing atop sugar cubes

for the mint julep
the smell of bourbon and burgoo

and a stout cigar
just another day at the races
