Sheep make footpaths
A walker's wry comment on misleading tracks over the hills
It sometimes spoils my walking plans
That sheep make footpaths, just like man's,
So, often when I lose a path,
It runs out in a patch of grass;
For we make paths for complex needs,
But sheep paths lead to tasty feeds.
So, worthy though our objects are,
Sheep scorn them with dismissive "baa"!
