Once there was a lordly sheep, a ram “I am”,

not following the herd but breaking new ground.

Challenging the sheep dog while seeking new pastures,

preferring the rapids instead of still waters.

Never was he a sacrificial lamb–not he.

Nor was he like Mary’s lamb–meek and lowly.

Orwellian and all so very contrarian,

a mad Frankenstein mis-cloned his pedigree.

One thought on “Sheep-Shifting

  1. “Nor was he like Mary’s lamb…”

    Now I have a perfect idea on how ‘Lordly’ the sheep…a ram indeed he is.
