Theres A Goat On My Roof

There’s a goat on my roof and he won’t come down; there’s a goat on my roof, acting like a clown. That clip-clop of hooves, what obnoxious noise; though it’s amazing, his level of poise. What drew him there, I do not know, there wasn’t any food or foe. Just walking around, he thinks he’s hot, I had to tell him, he is not. He’s munching my oak, from the roof top; I’ve yelled till I’m hoarse, to get him to stop. My neighbor says, a goat is good Feng Shui; so, I suppose I will just let him stay.

Oh how lovely - your own definite style of poetry which is truly magical with imagery that soars - a goat on your roof which is good and will stay - kudos dear friend. Hugs, Jennifer.

G'day M. L. … I did enjoy your fun verse, and it reminds of when I discovered a goat on my car eating the leaves off a willow tree, and it wouldn't get off - thank you M. L. - Lindsay

Yes, they go everywhere and eat way too much of everything. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

This is one of my Favoritest FAVs!!! So wonderfully whimsical (yet believable, as that is typical goat-behavior)! So stubborn and haughty, and yet- "good Feng Shui"! Hahahaaaa ;D LOVE this!!

I am a strong believer in Feng Shui M.L. I had to move my bedroom to have a south facing door opening and it has made all the difference. I enjoyed your poem. Let the goat eat on....but you may need to repair the roof! LOL xxoo

Hello M.L.Kiser, I would leave the goat on the roof. He will climb down when he is ready. Have a nice evening my friend.
