Insomnia

A herd of sheep is lost in the desert.
Flip, Flop, Fluffle
They stumble about in a truculent sandstorm.
Squabbles sizzle throughout the troupe.
Creaking stomachs drown out
the sounds of whimpering lambs.
They'd all been saving room
for their luncheon with Mr. Sandman.

Alas,
the three-pronged cactus where
they were supposed to turn left,
never appeared.

And now they are tardy.
