We Don't Count

Sheep from the Goats

When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.
All the nations will be gathered before him,
and he will separate the people one from another
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will put the sheep on his right 
and the goats on his left.

Matthew 25:31


Butt, baaed the Goat
Why don't we count
among the good?

Please, bleated the Sheep
I thought he made
that perfectly clear.

It is arbitrary, cawed the Crow
Watching it all
from his lofty perch.

Black is evil
And the pure white Dove
A saint.

I know things
about the doves
which are not so pure, he cackled.

Sheep, Goat
Black, White
Red and Blue

Please give me a clue.
The shepherd pleaded
Left or Right.

It matters not, spoke the Raven
Others have chosen
You do not count.
