Does this ring true?
It would be more realistic if it read: "He maketh me to stand all day in
wet bracken, He driveth me across these bloody cold wet mountains. He
sheareth me naked and bloody and stealeth my children for stewing."
Furthermore: "He plungeth me into the sheep-dip, He forceth the sheep-drench
down my throat. He docketh my tail and He bindeth up my testicles so that it
bringeth tears to mine eyes. And that dog of His getteth on my nerves, too."
