No Sleep

A tired young man with no sleep
Heard it would help to count sheep
Made his way up to ten
But got scared by a hen
And the big stick of Little Bo Peep

Ask the Sheep

We know knitters knit wool from skeins,
and when wet, us the wearer complains,
for our pullovers shrink,
and so this made me think,
why don't sheep ever shrink when it rains?

Kids' Funny Farm

I live on a farm in the sky;
we milk all the pigs as they fly;
at harvest we reap
the eggs from the sheep, 
and shear woolly cows in a sty.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Like sheep on a steep rocky slope,
We need to have guidance to cope.
We might fall and slide down
To the sea and all drown.
Heed the ShepherdHe’s our only hope.

There once was a dream in my sleep
I was out in the fields with my sheep
I wanted to pee
Let it out with glee
I woke up with in a puddle in my keep.

once a sheep dog named percy

licked a farmer quite slurply

We the Sheep...Revised

You found a way to dismiss us, didn't you
Thought "we the people" really had no clue
The laws that congress passes
Apply only to the masses
May November find you feeling blue

"a Shepherd's Metaphor"

In economy led of beastly mind,

Upon a political serpentine.

All strives of wickedness kicks,

Against the fleece of Love’s Pricks(goads).

As true sheep trod, before their God’s, INClINE(will).

Sheep Shepherds (We Ain'T Much Smarter)

You fixin' to get CLIPPED (clueless beast!)
Or dismembered for a mutton feast
Make a break from your breeders
Don't follow lyin' leaders!
Or you gonna' get FLEECED (at the least!)

Drunken Outback Dog

My brown kelpy outback dog
Quite often gets on the grog,
He chases his tail constantly,
Briefly stopping to scratch a flea,
Then, off with the sheep to play leap-frog.

Baaa Baaa

I've given up my right to keep

           Active in Political Speak

           So I don't vote election day

            I just follow along the way

            Now, I lay me down as Sheep

Counting Missing Sheep

That night once again tossing and turning,
having very badly a sleepy yearning,
like little Bo Peep,
missing some sheep,
sheep hiding thinking its time for a shearing.

Big Oh

Little Bo Peep, taxed out of her sheep

How many does Big Oh need to keep?

Leading them about

With rhetorical shout

Over pomp and circumstance knee deep

Count Sheep

The Latin words sopor quies
Sound just like Hebrew spor keves !
    So to help you sleep deep,
    We now tell you "count sheep !"
That pun's for a polyglot, yes?

I have heard what will make my day;
When God lets me have my own way;
Count many sheep;
Then go to sleep;
While in heaven with Him will stay.

On a tall cross that had a girder
They caused what was to be murder
Of Son of God our sheep herder.

Count All My Sheep

Count All My Sheep

Each time before I will go to sleep;
Start out by counting all my sheep;
Will spare my care;
Hope they are their;
One was missing and sadly did weep.

Oh For Some Zzzz

I slept in our bed sound asleep
Under the covers i felt a hand creep
    It was my American dove
    Who had given me a shove
For my snoring had left her counting sheep

Count Those Sheep

Young Theodore loved nothing more than sleep
Never once had he ever counted sheep
  But when he hit puberty
  He got excited, you see
Fell for a stripper named 'Little-Bo-Peep'
