Pete and Jude were their names. One was born the year he was and the other was a year or two older. Everyone is dead that would remember. And only a few alive that would care. A couple of Missouri red mules that worked the stony soil of the family farm. Pete lived to be 33. He is still alive.
the old mule
no longer pulling the plows
nibbles a straw hat
