"A Shepherd's Metaphor"

In economy led of beastly mind, Upon a political serpentine. All strives of wickedness kicks, Against the fleece of Love’s Pricks(goads). As true sheep trod, before their God’s, INClINE(will). For Contest: Follower or Leader In Honor of: Carolyn Devonshire Placed #3

A Seven, John, because of the witty parentheses and serpentine/incline is a fine rhyme. Thanks to you for the honor and all the best to you. Keep praying. As Satchiel Paige once famously noted: " Don't look over your shoulder, because something might be gaining on you." Regards, Gerard.

Good political write...Even men who seem to be true believers seem to be pulled away into human desires once in political power..Keep the creative pen flowing.Sara
