ZOO - THE SHEEBER

SHEEBER I’ve never seen its like before Says it’s very rare Only a half-dozen left In the high regions of Tibet somewhere Covered with coarse thick gray hair Half sheep half bear The Sheeber Is this a joke? A Disney craft-shop reject? I simply stand and stare And Back at me it stares As though I’m the joke I’m the Disney craft-shop reject We stand like this Stand and stare For an hour it seems At last it cannot bare the stare This Sheeber And lets me know it Emits this crazy howl Half bleat half growl I get the hell out of there!

This is a really fun poem and shows great imagination. I never heard of the sheeber. Is it a made up beast or legendary one like Big Foot? Luv, Andrea
