Goats may mingle with the sheep
and mimic what they say,
but a goat is still a goat
up to its dying day.

Goats may act like sheep
and learn to play the game,
but they can't trick the shepherd
who calls them all by name!

Goats may walk and talk like sheep
and maintain a good facade...
they may deceive other sheep
but they can never fool God!

Their well devised schemes
are exposed by the wise...
the shepherd sees through
every manner of diguise.

Goats may imitate the sheep
and blend in with the herd,
but heaven knows the difference
according to God's word!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
