I was out in the field, tending my sheep,
Just a few little cuties I have in my keep
And Toe down the road was pruning fruit trees
Getting them ready for the coming freeze.

It was a peaceful day...no dark clouds in sight,
The kind of a day when the world seems just right.
Not a clue to foretell the dark tragedy
That was just 'round the bend from old Toe and me.

Then the air grew quite chilly. I could feel no breeze
And the birds stopped their singing high up in the trees.
Then my sheep got all nervous and started to bleat
And I felt the vibrations of Toe's running feet.

He screamed out in a panic, "Hey, there, Balladeer!
I think you had better get the flock out of here!
Just over that hill there, I think you should know
DreamEvil's set up his Salvation show!"

DreamEvil! That name sent chills down my spine.
He lived to lead sheep and now he wanted mine!
Already they'd disappeared over the hill,
Drawn like a magnet by Dream's evil spell.

By the time Toe and I had reached the big tent
I knew in a heartbeat what Toerag had meant.
My sheep were all there, as were some other herds,
Mesmerized fully by Dream's silky words.

His words rang out sweet. They responded with 'baaa's
(Which the human equivalent would have been 'ooh's and aaah's)
Sweet compliments flowed out from his evil lips
And, before he was done, he had them in his grips.

How many poor sheep had he led down the path,
Promising kindness, on their own behalf,
Only to leave them sad and forlorn,
Rising at morn to find out they'd been shorn?

So his sermon continued - I knew I had lost
For they would go with him, whatever the cost.
By the time that DreamEvil preached the ewe-logy
I knew that the flock had been knocked out of me.

Toe and I stood there, just watching them go,
Now part of DreamEvil's Salvation show.
Toe patted my shoulder, "Don't worry, old coot.
Old Toe is your pal. I've got plenty of fruit."

DreamEvil had asked, I remember, one time
A question that he had slipped in a rhyme.
He asked it quite smoothly, as part of a game,
Why I prefer sheep...I would ask him the same.

Perhaps you should 'woo' your sheep into staying with some sweet words of poetry! What 'ewe' could resist you?

THANKS to all you hearty souls for your kind words. Saxoness, good to hear from you.

This IS done in all clean fun, you know, welcoming DE into the comedy fray he expressed interest in joining. Welcome.

That Rotten Dreamevil,
With his Salvation Show,
How he hurt Balladeer,
He'll never know.

Sure, I offered him fruit,
But that wasn't enough,
It's not nearly as cuddly,
And it's so hard to fluff.

I guess he'll start over,
With little or nuthin'
Call LongJohn the Sailor,
And buy some of his mutton.

HAHA!

I warned my friend dream
to stay out of the fray.
But he insisted on joining
had something to say.

So being a good friend
I lent him my funny bone.
And with a little effort
he wrote a humorous poem.

But now that he's caught
the attention of 'Deer.
He can find his own bone
I'm gettin the flock outta here.

great poem 'Deer!!!

Give this deer a couple of days off, and he spends it honing his sardonic staff....
DE, you've been roasted and toasted with the best of 'em...
