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.
