Escape from a lying wolf

 

I was a she-wolf

Hurt and injured by traps

By hunters and maniacs

I found a herd of sheep

They took me in

They sheltered me

Their wool warmed me

Their kindness soothed me

Their numbers protected me

 

But there was one sheep

He stayed closer

He listened harder

He provided more

He was different

His wool seemed fake

His heart out of place

His bleat so gruff

His knowledge too great

 

I healed, I waited, I grew

Until my strength was renewed

Until it was time to leave ewe

A grateful she-wolf

Thanks to befriended sheep

But it was time to leave

For wolves are not sheep

With a humble heart

 I returned to my pack

 

At home thinking back

To memories en masse

To that different sheep

Who had kept so close

Right by my side

A protector, a guide

All the time thinking why

All of my knowing saying

He was a wolf in sheep’s clothing
