Friday Fictioneers-16 MAY 2014/ The Black Sheep

PHOTO PROMPT Copyright-Sandra Crook

Story begins after the rhyme.

(Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane)
The Black Sheep

The sheep owner was very angry because how could a sheep decide whom to give the wool even if it was her wool, wasn’t he the master. For him and for the dame was okay as he could certainly extract some favor from the dame but what could a poor boy give him in return.  No one but the black one dared to answer differently. Other sheep always responded by answering that the master has all the rights to decide. So he locked the black sheep in the barn. No one knows what happened to that kind considerate black sheep.

  1. Occasionally, It is the black sheep that have irrefutable logic. Excellent.


  2. Nice little fable Indira. 🙂


  3. Dear Indira,

    Poor black sheep. Sounds like having a mind of her own backfired. Perhaps the farmer will listen to reason.




  4. Sometimes being kind considerate isn’t enough! Well done.


  5. What a bummer Indira, the poor little black sheep got locked up! Such a cute story. You really have a great imagination! Thanks! Nan 🙂


    • OMG Nan, you are such an encouraging soul. Thanks for your kind comment. You made my day.

  6. Indira, That was very creative to take the rhyme farther and tell what happened to the sheep. The farmer was probably thinking of the money he could get for that wool. Well written. 🙂 —Susan


  7. Nothing good, I expect!
