Thank God for Biblical Clip-Art


Gorillas die--and so do humanists--who keep
Comparisons clear for evolution's non-escape
And man the deathless target, of his own weak sheep...

from "I Have That Sure Enclitic," a fragment

I apologize for the sad delay; this masterpiece took me much longer than I was expecting, what with having to fuse so many disparate elements--gun, sheep, tombstones, Christopher Lambert--into a coherent piece of art. After all is said and done, I am quite pleased with the result. I think you will find the clip-art I used as a background extremely beautiful--I love the way the shepherd's hand has disappeared wholly into that sheep's hungry ass. You'd think this was an ingenious touch of mine, but I can assure you that it was present in the original drawing. Also, I have no idea why one of its hind legs tapers off bloodlessly at the knee.

As for my own subtle embroideries, I have depicted the sheep shooting lasers out of their eyes at the unkillable shepherd; one of the sheep has taken the further measure of arming itself with a gun, which will do it no good. You can tell the sheep are weak because they have lady-breasts and one of them is shouting, "Let me show you my little enclitic, Christopher Lambert!" I arrived at this version after a great deal of trial and error, having first given them parasols and trailing tampon strings between their legs.

Oh Jesus, you crack me up. I think the bloodless stump is an instance of BAD ART.

Truly--at first I thought it was maybe a tail, but it's way too long, so it must be a stump. Maybe the lion ate it! Maybe it is disappearing down the lion's gullet both eternally and as we speak!

I must confess that I am dying inside with unsatisfied curiousity as I wonder just what comment one would make herein to have it deleted for its offensivesness. I mean, we're dealing with homicidal sheep trying to show an Immortal their little enclitics, here.

Still, masterfully conceived and executed, Miz Tricia. You never fail to lance the boils of creative blockage.

It was spam--a link posted by a guy telling me to EAT MORE BEEF. All of the comments that I've deleted have been spam. I should probably activate the word verification function but I always have so much trouble reading the letters myself that I am hesitant.

"Lance the boils of creative blockage"--nice.
