Sheep



He gazed at the motley of colourful woolen garments that shone amidst the crowd assembled in the City Center for their daily morning prayer. He loved watching this ritual, where all residents of the city conglomerated to thank the God every morning.

It was winter, the season which was meant to be his; but alas, not anymore.

As the people shook hands and went their respective ways, the poor Sheep shivered in cold. He was sheared last week, his wool now keeping the people warm. He walked to a corner, sat, and closed his eyes, counting his last breaths.

  1. I have always thought whether these sheep won't feel the cold when their coat is been ripped off... Sad!

  8. Ouch! This hurts. The things that some animals have to undergo for the sake of mankind.

    It is actually cruel that God made it that way.

    1. Perhaps we can use technology to create artificial wool, instead of causing pain to the sheep.
