Hooded like hangmen
and frightened like lambs
they mill about,
some setting into a pout
as grubby hands thrust
through bars, degrading trust.

The air is no longer fresh
their straw an unruly mess,
but even so they soon lay
in patience a mass of gray
no independence to be found.
Their cries fade trampled into the ground.

Thank you so much for your nice comments on my blog.

Sheep in Hoods, hmmmm.

We're all from the hood...

That's all I can think of. Thank you for sharing.

[bins from your deep unparallel]

bins from your deep unparallel,
monks and thieves
stationed in cold north pastures
in waiting for
the sound of Her highness bell,
its mold molasses-
coated, sheer, surface perfectly
cast. Last of its breed.
Monks steal petty prayers from
the silenced peal.
Thieves annoint three of the sheep,
then brand, brand, brand.
Just two and a half are left.
Now only you, awake
to take the final photograph.
You wild wolf,
you last, unkind alternative.

Overherd at the Sheep Masquerade: Who are ewe supposed to be?

They answered:
I am the Grim Shepper.
I am the Exec-ewe-tioner, Lamb Chop.
I am the black sheep in the family.

They shared their real identities with each other, but never told another. They were shorn to secrecy.
