Woolly Thinking

by Steven Urquhart Bell

“Sheep help to keep grass trim at East Yorkshire solar farm”
BBC News

I wonder: should I get a sheep
To keep my grass in trim?
I’d save on electricity—
It isn’t just a whim.

But then would come the winter, and
My cold and lonely bed.
Perhaps I better get the garden
Concreted instead.
