Just Another Saturday Poem


Responding to the challenge over at this blog:



Judging at the Lambs Down Festival, Carleton Place, Ontario

Dressed for this morning’s cool weather

by noon I was feeling the heat

at the annual sheep-shearing festival

here in town, just down the street.

There were sheepdogs herding the bleaters

and big dogs just out for a stroll.

We held a youth art competition

with everything under control.

There were prizes for all of the kiddies

and lamb burgers, waffles and fries.

There were buyers and sellers and two fortune tellers

and a big fella selling pink ties.
