The Foolish Sheep

The spoken word
is the wool
worn by wolves
who want to rule
over the flock

By indulging
the baas of
persistent paranoias
and fanciful stories
about the “other sheep”

The wolves’ claws
are stained in the blood
of those who thought
that they can be accomplices

The foolish sheep thought
if they lead enough of
their flock off a cliff
that they too can grow claws
