The gathered sheep fall into formation, and behold: the flock is now a pack. And the pack snarls “Let us prey!” Whoever keeps their wool is devoured with the others.
There is no shock of Revelation, no disturbance of conscience, no lost sleep.
Today is today. Yesterday is a wooly memory.
Tomorrow will be tomorrow. If forgiveness is needed it will be taken.
All will be forgotten in the retellings of the tale.
We were the good guys.
