indirect genetic modification...

.

(The last crow is heard as night falls...)

- Hey pals, let's finish the job tonight! There is no moon and darkness is a good cover-up. The barn will be pitch dark and none of our fellow sheep can see anything!

- What about Beefy? Is he in? Stargazer is strong; just Beefy can serve him right! He he he...

- Yea... He's in... but wants the first round of grazing in return.

- Greedy pig! He'll just sit on a loose mouth for five minutes... No big deal!

- O the hell with that! Let him stuff his big tummy more... One of these days he'll burst like a firecracker! But the point is that I don't wanna hear any of Stargazer's speeches on not believing the farm men's threats... Can't stand them anymore! Man... sure they do take us to the slaughterhouse one of these days and he talks about preserving the pastureland for the future generations... Teaching our lambs how to...

- How can we care about future when we know we die soon? How can we think about others when we are not sure if we are alive tomorrow?!

- And all he does is to gaze at the stars... smiling at us and saying,
"Hey buddies, our world is not just this barn and this pastureland... We can find a way out only if we are... "

- I don't care a damn how big our world is... I don't like any adventures... And maybe everything would get worse if we left here... or if we didn't believe the farm men... They look after us, you know... That's what they do...

- Hey Stargazer! Get ready to eat crow! He he he...




(The first crow is heard as day rises...)

- O my! It's so damn heavy! Can't drag it out... Gimme a hand, pal! Now what should we do with it? Bury it?

- Sure! We wouldn't like any of Stargazer's genes to be spread around! Ha ha ha... Hey Jake... Told ya! They'd take care of the bad genes themselves... Did you like my slaughterhouse trick?... "Go graze gamins! Today may be your last! The butchers' knives are waiting for your necks!"

- Cool! But this time you are the one repeating that ghastly sentence first thing in the morning everyday when you open the door of the barn...
