The five

Exodus 21:36 New English Translation (NET Bible)

36 Or if it is known that the ox had the habit of goring,

and its owner did not take the necessary precautions,

he must surely pay ox for ox, and the dead animal will become his.




Don’t you ever get tired of kicking a dead horse?

You hammer on the swollen belly without any rest

Until you hear a burping sound and then of course

You holler it’s alive and well as the tail moves by gas


I heard it myself he screams! Let me call the panel

Experts with straight faces now will give their slate

Greg suggests a gas-mask and Jesse oxygen for a farewell

While Dana is just smiling knowing she gets paid


Give me judge Napolitano one of New York’s finest

He is interested or the horse left a will and for whom?

Or the gas moved from left to right is analyzed by Andrea

Fair and balanced now the call by five in the afternoon
