Sheeple

Sheeple

 

Sheeple are a common breed or herd

forming the greater part of humanity´s resevoir

They flock to the latest craze

and will do what anyone says

Incapable of original thought

they go in search of a Shepherd to follow

The unscrupulous see them coming

and welcome them into the fold

Sheeple are really people in disguise

wearing the garb of conformity and willingness

When asked to jump, they ask how high

Bereft of any original thought

they drift through life quite lost

Rudderless souls in search of a Captain

docile, compliant and easily influenced

they bring tyrants to power

fight wars they know not what for

and seldom travel very far

yes Keith - I just made it up - you read it here first!

Kevin - according to Wikipedia the word 'sheeple' dates to the 1940's which surprised me as I thought it was much more recent than that.

I don't advocate throwing anything from steeples btw. And lemmings committing mass suicide is fake news. But I digress. It's Father's Day and I'm being allowed to do what I want so I'm keeping out the hot sun and chilling with my lappy in a quiet corner.

Enjoy your Sunday,
Col

Hello Colin, are you by any chance referring to Lemmings? Keith
