Just the Sheep and the Goats and the Shepherd

We all know the story but who'll believe it?
Big Bang creates something from nothing
but who struck the match is a mystery.

Another Big Bang goes off at the end
and everything becomes nothing again
except for the sheep and the goats,

the sheep on the one side, the goats
on the other and the goats disappear
and the sheep follow the shepherd.

We all know the story but who'll believe it?
Not the people who moved to Mars. Just
the sheep and the goats and the shepherd.
