Time To Be Off

Allison Symes

‘We don’t usually leave the sheep, boss.  You say it’s dangerous.’

‘Yes, lad, but this is different.’  The head shepherd gazed at the  youngest herdsman.

‘The wolves and other predators are still out there, boss.’

‘Our visitors will make sure our animals are all right while we visit Bethlehem, lad.’

‘They didn’t say so, boss.  They just talked and sang about “glory to God”.’

‘True, lad, but they know we need our sheep.  Come on, let’s go.  Are you nervous?  Is that why you’re dilly dallying?’

The young herdsman gulped.  ‘Be fair, boss, it’s not everyday you meet the Son of God.’
