SHEEP DOGS
watch her sheep dogs run the flock
can't find their eyes
but they always know just where to be
when to be there
keep each other posted with anxious yips

the sheep are dumb as billiard balls
easy to bank off the pasture fence
they work routinely
three ball combinations through the gate
it's their specialty
except for politicians
nothing else here can make a good living
from idle posturing
