2 Short Poems From The Thunderbolt Carline

Poem By Sheena Blackhall

A Very Expensive Lamb
(£367,000 sheep is world's most expensive)

A Pedigree Texel wee lamb
Double Diamond, a good breeding ram
In Lanark was sold
For a fortune in gold
It was hoped he could give the grand slam



Worries of a Three Year Old
Told by a granddaughter

My bum has got a crack. Mummy it's true!
It splits my little bum cheeks into two

I've seen cracks in the pavements
There, weeds show
From my behind will dandelions grow?

As the ship crossed the horizon
To dropp off the world as he knew it
His shovel beard, his barrel chest
