Question: What do you expect at 5am!?

Oh the shame of it all

I saw a maid who was comely and fair
With pink ribbons tied in her curled hair!.
Her beauty smote me at my first glance
For to my heart she had gained entrance!.

She looked at me and with a girlish smile
Yet in her eyes there was a hint of guile!.
As to my ear came whispers of her ploy
For my comely fair maid was really a boy!.

In total dismay at my unfortunate plight
I went straight home a dejected ill sight!.
To the stable I went, not an unusual course
But in truth ’twas there I kicked my horse!.

haha, very good, I would just take out the word ill, It sounds fine without it, but with it it seems a bit rushed and pressured to reach the desired amount of syllables!. That is, unless you inserted a comma indicating a pause after dejected!. Or just ignore me and don't change it at all :)

But really I do like it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Do not kick the horse ever again,

As for the girl, now boy,
disguised with such guile
Give him a smile next time you see him!.
