The Sheep

by Sonthiel

Age Group: Adult



Here nature is stifled
the world is reversed
only in this hell
would things be so perverse
to have sheep mauling wolf-kind
simply through numbers
they follow each other
those clones and buffoons
and the lone wolf takes shelter
from those who would pelt her
to death with cruel stones
as she hides from the moon

The wolf's howl is silent
their bleating's so violent
that bittersweet opera
reduced to a whine

More sheep!
They are breeding
and on our corpses
feeding
the seas are receding
the world reeks of gloom

The raven tried flying
she continues defying
but there's no denying
she's going down too

Her wings are now broken
and crawling to wolf's den
she hides from the sheep
who broke her soul too

And through her twisted feathers
we don't know whether
her scars will heal over
and she'll fly back to you.




Author's Notes: This poem was written shortly after an encounter with a mob of chauvinistic racist homophobes who insulted my friends. These are the sheep I speak of, people who bleat the same, eat the same and strive to be bland and ignorant. They upset me mildly, when they go for my friends they upset me a lot more. If the Wiccan Rede weren't worth following I may have resorted to pointless violence, but I refuse to let myself be reduced to their level of tact.

Toodle oo,

Sonthiel
