Lambs without a fence, shepherds without slings

Tomorrow morning, millions of families will send their children off to school. These little lambs are entrusted to their school staff to shepherd them safely through the school day.

But, the lone wolf predator lurks at the edge of the flock, looking for prey to satisfy his evil desire for blood. This lone wolf my be deranged, but he is not entirely stupid. He recognizes the fact that the shepherds don't have slings, the No Slings signs rob the shepherds of any effective means of defeating the predator. Sheep dogs are at best ten minutes away and expensive to keep, and the lambfold becomes a slaughterhouse for the lone wolf.

Some adult sheep, who have an irrational fear of slings, insist that it would be b-a-a-a-d for shepherds to have slings. They bleat that the lambs would not feel good with slings in the fold. They think that a shepherd with an advanced degree can't learn how to effectively use a sling. But sheep David G of NBC sends his little lambs to a school surrounded by sheepdogs; while he has a pouch that holds thirty stones, and surrounds himself with sheepdogs.

Will these sheep continue to have their way, with the same results as in the past? Or will the states pass legislation to allow the shepherds to effectively protect the little lambs?

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 22:3 (NLT)
