Word Art 005

It has been calculated that each copy of the Gutenburg Bible...required the skins of 300 sheep. 
--from an article on printing


I can see them squeezed into the holding pen
behind the stone building
where the printing press is housed.

all of them squirming around
to find a little room
and looking so much alike

it would be nearly impossible
to count them
and there is no telling

which one will carry the news
that the Lord is a shepherd,
one of the few things they already know.

"Flock" by Billy Collins
