I am sure there is nothing sordid about this despite what some will think. The Confused One rarely stoops to such depths for there is more than enough pithy wit to be had.
So I have to take this one on face value and that, as you will have seen by now, is unusual.
Any time away from the human species is a blessing and why not take that time with goats.
That boys should do this is significant too. They are vulnerable and weak and can easily turn into bullies or narcissists if those fears are allowed to fester.
Time alone with the goats as they are stalked by the leopard brings boys fortitude and they can banish weakness.
