Sheep

It’s terribly insulting

to refer to the American people

as sheep.

We had to catch

our sheep today

because it was hoof-trimming day

and parasiticide day

and the sheep knew what was up

they always know

if we’re trying to catch them…

the goats realize

that we’re not going to hurt them

and they walk right up to us

the goats are more like dogs

but the sheep don’t trust us

and they are always thinking

a few steps ahead of us.

They’re smart,

and quick on their feet.

Sheep are so much more intelligent

than we give them credit for

and faster

and stronger.

 

Stop calling Americans sheep

or ‘sheeple’

sheep deserve so much more respect

than that.

Sheep don’t trust anyone

and they would know if a wolf

was playing dress-up.

Americans trust wolves

more than anyone,

we worship them.

I have so much more respect

for sheep

than I have for the American people

This blasphemy must end!
