Goat Not Horse

I am a goat not a horse
So why when we go for a walk
do you feed me tin cans
containing horse feed?

I am a clam not a mussel
So why when you tug on my beard
do I refuse to move from my rock
where I live?

I am A4 not foolscap and
punched with three holes
so why do you try to put me
in a four-ring binder.

I am English not Italian
So when you greet me shake
my hand don’t grin and hug
me like a bear.

I am going around the bend
so when you see me don’t
pretend that you are awkward around men
because I’ve seen it all before.
