A wandering salesman bought himself a goat

"I think I got that backwards, eh goaty?" the goat did not respond

"Never mind that, I'll just sell you in the next town" the goat continued walking

His conscience was heavy with inconsiderate words he'd uttered to goaty

Grain! That'll make goaty feel better

In the next village the salesman bought some grain

"Got it wrong again, eh goaty?"

The travelling salesman packed it all in

He clearly wasn't cut out for this line of work

Leaning back on romantically scattered rocks he smiled as goaty chewed and tugged his corduroy legs
