Poem for Wednesday and Mount Vernon Lambs

The Shepherd
By William Blake

How sweet is the Shepherd's sweet lot!
From the morn to the evening he strays;
He shall follow his sheep all the day,

And he hears the ewe's tender reply;
He is watchful, while they are in peace,
For they know when their Shepherd is nigh.

Dinner was leftover "ham" and cheese pie, then my Voyager group watched "Resistance" -- the episode with Joel Grey -- which still holds up very well, particularly his performance and Kate Mulgrew's. Afterward we watched this week's Supergirl, with an unbearably stupid trial of Lex Luthor and not enough Kara or Lena, followed by this week's Last Week Tonight, on which John Oliver pointed out that Jeff Bezos is a better Lex Luthor than Lex Luthor anyway.
