Baa to that


I can think of nothing worse
Than to be afficted with the curse
Of unity

That strange desire to be the same
When all the good that I can name 
Is different

Should we all the same language speak?
And strive to have the same physique?
I think not

Automaton I refuse to be
I am myself and happily
Which is good

Be careful that once you do conform
You'll not be you but just the norm
Just a slave

Be like minded, yes that is fine
But to be a sheep do not incline
Baa to that

  1. Yes, baaaa to being a sheep. A great response to the prompt.............always good to be an individual, not conform to the norm.But we can march together, still. Smiles. (I know, you and I are too tired, arent we? and the battle is going on too long.)

  2. Hahaha! Wonderful fun. The picture is perfect and I'm glad the sheep made it into the poem before the end. I love "the curse of unity." I agree. How many different ways there are to look at unity!

  8. We can unite, but not conform! Not mindless sheep, but purposeful flock. :-)
