A wolf sauntered near the flock
of innocent white sheep,
and in that cunning mind he thought
“I think I’ll have some fun.”
He loudly bayed behind a rock,
then sat with toothy grin.
And let his laughter thunder loud
to chase their panicked run.
The flock of innocent white sheep
shot straight into the air.
With startled hearts they ran about,
save one too slow,
was trampled unknown down.
Innocent sheep with minds so dull,
felt a body under hoof.
At once in heart they all believed
they had felled the big bad wolf.
No longer innocent, these sheep,
turned with eyes red glaring.
They every one chose a stick
and killed their brother there.
The wolf had not expected this;
jaw dropping in despair.
He thought aloud while running off,
“Of blood this time I’m innocent,
and blessed I’m not a sheep!”
The moral of these verses,
You may have early guessed,
Those sheep aren’t sheep at all,
But really you and me.
Wolves will bay, snarl and snap
so that we’ll fear for life.
Instead of racing for ourselves,
pick the weaker up.
It’s only then we’ll cease to be
a flock of mindless sheep.
