Don'T Shoot Sean - Poem by Francesca Johnson

Sean is not a sheep
to be shorn.

Don't be woolly-headed, mate.
Put down that gun before it's too late.

Lamb to the slaughter?
You hadn't ought to be using that gun
in the presense of your son.

Don't shoot Sean, please
be careful.

Oh, ****
Sean's shot.

Surely not?


(Using a staple gun with children about can be too hazardous)

No sheep were harmed in the making of this poem.

And Sean lives on....

    Sean is shorn and fleeced all in one go.Maybe thats why he has a sheepish look on his face.
    Nice one that I missed a while back.
