ALL HE WANTS TO DO [40]

ALL HE WANTS TO DO

Goat hears that she is doing well.
He goes to the field at night,
luminous, and picks roots and
vegetables.

He leaves them by the shepherd
boy’s door. He knows what to do
with them.

Goat receives a thank you note.
He almost dies.

POOL PARTY [39]

POOL PARTY

Maureen is stung by a bee
heading to her wading pool
in her backyard. Her dad
locates the hive in a nearby
bush.

He tries a spray but
the bees buzz about, so
everyone goes inside. Next
morning, the hive is trampled,
the bush uprooted, the yard
full of rocks.

IN TAR [38]

IN TAR

The year is 2540.
Archaeologists dig up
an ancient tar pit.

They find a sign
that says, “TOYS R US.”
They find a goat skeleton
covered with yarn, perfectly
preserved. They touch it,

it gets up and bites everyone.
They leave it alone.

GOAT BECOMES CONVINCED OF MORALITY [37]

GOAT BECOMES CONVINCED OF MORALITY

One day God picked up Goat by his scruff.
“Do you believe in me?” he asked.

“It looks like I have to,” Goat answered.
“Think what you want,” God answered,

dropping him. “Bramble!” yelled Goat.
That night, he broke into Woolworths,

and destroyed the toy section. On a
rubber doll he found a yarn knot

and slipped it behind his whiskers.
His eyes felt like coal.
