You never know, do you ?
" BEASTS IN THE MIST.

They gather in the full moon's light
On lonely roads at dead of night
With shining eyes that pierce the mists
They prey on passing motorists

Sure footed over rock and crag
A victim fresh to feast they drag
And all that’s left when feeding's through
Is a baseball cap and a training shoe

No wolf or hound will prowl the moors
And ghosts and ghouls stay home indoors
So when shrill screams disturb your sleep
Beware the Cumberland killer sheep. "

[ Paul Curtis. : see www.helium.com/users/66512 ]

P.S. I have contacted the poet, who is content that I use his poem.

A picture from Murlough Bay, Co. Antrim : who says that these sheep, apparently so docile and timid, might not also, if the time were right, suddenly turn into " Murlough killer sheep ".

Barra1man (Leaving ), Don Sutherland, Joan+ have particularly liked this photo

The Three Graces, posing so well for you Geoff.

Love this one (you cannot go wrong with sheep, in my opinion!)

The poem is a wonder! Now, does he mean Herdwicks (never, surely.....!!)

A terrific and peaceful pastoral scene! No doubt a clever front to
lull us into a false sense of security. :) Well, they won't pull the wool
over my eyes. Have a grand day.
