Bring on the farmers!

Bring on the farmers!

Everyone is worried,
When will we get our jab?
we’re all stuck in lockdown
life has become so drab.

We should hand it to the farmers
It would only take a week,
They’ve had lots of practice
Injecting all those sheep.

I reckon they could do it
They’ve got some decent kit,
If they line up all their hurdles
They’ll do it in one hit.

The ones who keep the cattle
Well, they could use a crush,
The dogs would sort the queue out
There is no need to rush.

They may even change the needle
Every hour or so,
And they will keep on going
Through wind and rain or snow.

And whilst we are together
They could even check our teeth
And fire up the shearing handsets
And give us a trim beneath!

I live in a tied cottage on a farm in rural Dorset. I work as an activity coordinator in a local care home, organising everything from visiting donkeys to trips out to the seaside! I have always been involved in agriculture. I love travelling, gardening , reading and I also have taken to writing poetry. I have just published my 3rd book which is something I have always wanted to do! My books are available on Amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jan-Millward/e/B0189K8IT2/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

Very funny Jan. I think I’ll wait in line for mine at my GP’s. I can think of a few people whom the farmers might like to service in this way though.
