A Kingdom For A Dead Horse

“A kingdom for a horse!”, cried the King.

Quickly they went and brought him a horse – a dead horse…

And when they took away his kingdom the King complained:

“But this is a dead horse…!”

They told the King that where they come from there used to be an old saying:

“When your horse is dead, get off the horse.”

Now over time, they told the King, things changed a bit and today the saying goes:

“When your horse is dead, go and sell your horse!”

And so it came that the King gave his whole kingdom –

Yet all he got – was this old and dead horse…!
