Writing Prompt: Gift Horse

Writing prompt For the summer months, our writing prompts will be based on common idioms in the English language. "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth" is an idiom that comes from the fact that people would gauge the age of a horse based on how much the horse's gums had receded. To look a gift horse in the mouth is therefore considered rude and ungrateful, as it implies doubts about the value of the gift.

Write a story or poem that illustrates this idiom.
