Only One Mutton
My mind is a turbine of plots,
to the point, it is hard to sleep.
I count blessings, instead of sheep,
But Shaun slays them, with dreaded baaaahhhhhts.
They return, Shaun must lance alots,
or be he served to a glutton,
for he’s nothin’…but mutton,
Fear not, Lamb Chop comes unafraid,
wielding her magic sheering blade.
She shouts, “There can be only one.”
I bet you never thought stop animation and sock puppets could star in a slasher story, huh?
Some explaining to do, for those young folk out there. This didn’t start out as a pop culture, walk down memory lane thing, but with my first line and the word sleep as the prompt? It got away from me. I put links in for the various things that people might need a reference to. Another link is for Shari Lewis. You can watch Highlander: The Movie in the US here, on Tubitv.com for free with ads. Or here on Vudu.com for free with ads. It’s one of my favorites. I use both sites regularly. They are safe. No problems. You just set up a free account. Vudu used to be attached to Walmart.

Whether you enjoyed my poem or not, please click the link below to head to this week’s challenge page and visit some of the loyal in the comments who keep coming back to write using this style of poetry that is so accomodating to different ideas and more difficult than you may think to write. And it’s a great feeling to know you’re writing in a style created hundreds of years ago in Spain.

That was fun ! I like the references!
Really cute! Imagine that sweet little Lambchop wielding a weapon! My dog has a lamb toy, anyone with a dog has seen them everywhere, the one with big eyebrows. We call it “Lamby Martin” because of the eyebrows, you know, Martin Scorsese!

Ha. Nice name. 🙂
That was…interesting. I vaguely remember Lambchop from when I was about 4 years old. 🙂

Sometimes my mind just has to be released from its leash.

Just reading “Lamb Chop” has the never ending song on loop in my head 😆.
