A kiwi take on the well-known folksong/nursery rhyme ‘This old man, he played one, he played knick-knack on my thumb’, this Old Ram is equally versatile in making a living.  As farmers know, rams are not easy animals to subdue, and this Old Ram ‘set out to have some fun’ and consequently creates chaos.  He chases every ewe, chews on cabbage trees, skates on poo in the cowshed floor, chases an SUV, leaps to heaven . . .  No question: here is the ideal moral text to read to a class of naughty boys (whilst at the same time having much sympathy for the sheep dog)!  Enjoy!  JMcK
