Pavement Sheep!


I am always amazed at what you can buy from a home outlet store. Many of these shops overflow onto the pavement displaying such diversity as plants, plastic boxes, garden ornaments, gnomes and pavement sheep…

Walking along the pavement,
I couldn’t believe my eyes,
A sheep dog blocked my path,
And fixed me with his eyes!

Behind him stood two sheep,
No grass for them to graze,
They looked mighty hungry,
They hadn’t moved for days!

It was only then that I noticed,
As a farmer I was in shock,
They were all made of plastic,
The perfect townie flock!
