Vladimir Vysotsky. The Wayward Horses.

We’re horses, tried in battles for centuries...

We’re horses, tried in battles for centuries,
We carried noble defeaters,
And our portraits were depicted
By very famous icon-painters.
How many officers and soldiers
Gave us their care and affection!
And once Caligula was brought forth
By one of us, the most senseless.

1972.
