A poem with puns in praise of a lucky lamb in a pastoral picture, and words a good shepherd lives by


 A Lamb in Chic Clothing

Branded on a range not on a grill / Cooler in a pen than a pan

“It is the duty of a good shepherd to shear his sheep, not to skin them.” Tiberius

Marinated in dip that pickles ticks / Tender as the butt of a ram

“The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same.”

―Stendhal

Trimmed by a clipper not a carver / Never too close to the chin

“In things a moderation keep; Kings ought to shear, not skin, their sheep”

Robert Herrick

A lamb in chic clothing rests in fleece / Luckier than the roast of its kin

“Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.”

―Winston Churchill
