Iago – by Abu Bhaji 
I met Iago at the track
He convinced me to bet the trifecta
His words like needles to my yarn filled brain
Knitting up promises
Of fortunes
And an easier life
(Hop-a-long, Peggy-Sis, and Mad-e-line)
All my ponies came in
And boy did I win
But lost it all back on Baze in the slop in the nine
