Sheep that go ‘beep!’ in the night

When counting sheep,

whilst attempting sleep,

do any go ‘beep!’?


And, if instead, you imagine cows,

do any sing arias, juggle,

take bows?


Horses, I find,

can leap-frog your mind,

and you have no choice to choose,

when all you want is a snooze.


And if you imagine these things,

leap-frogging horses,

juggling cows, beeping sheep,

then I’m not at all surprised

that you can’t get to sleep.
