The Last Will Be First

The lame and dreamy goat
brings up the rear.

There are worried faces about that one,
but ah, now they’re laughing, because look,

as they return,
that goat is the leader!

There are many different kinds of knowing.
The lame goat’s kind is a branch
that traces back to the roots of Presence.

Learn from the lame goat,
and lead the herd Home.
