Poetry Friday: “Black Sheep”

poetryfridaybutton-fulllI didn’t plan on writing about animals for the 3rd week in a row; it just sort of happened that way. Perhaps I’ve had creatures on my mind because I just spent all of last weekend working at the local state fair…and as I mentioned a few days ago, it was once again a big learning experience!

Be that as it may, I present a short little ditty today that wasn’t even written about the fair – but with the animal references, I figured this time of year would be as good as any! It was originally just an exercise, me tossing around some ideas and seeing what I could create…and when it came together, I rather liked it. Hope you do, too!

Black Sheep

Break from the herd.
Take that leap.
Play the dark horse.
Be the black sheep.

  1. Hi, Matt. Adorable black sheep poem. I have to come back and read more of your summer fair posts. I remember going to a county fair in New York with my grandmother and seeing some amazing fancy rabbits.
