Thoughts while cycling and having a pint

It was like a wee yappy dog stampeded the herd into the jaws of the waiting wolves.

“Better the predator we know” mooed the English.

The herd philosophy was … do herds have philosophies?

The herd instinct was “they’ll mainly pick off the weak and sick”.

Perhaps true…

Unless of course the predators have become stronger, more cunning, more capricious,

And have found a taste for richer meat.

When I last cycled here, it was winter.  I did not stop for beer and put a more opaque layer of pastel and conte crayon over the penned sketch.
