a new phrase

we are all familiar with the phrase

made by  Ralph Waldo Emerson

“the shot heard round the world”

about that first shot of the American

 Revolution after it rang out  at Concord

after all these generations have passed

going forward from that fateful day

now a new thought comes into play

as high above us circling through space

astronauts gazing  toward endless space

wondering if the rumor could be true

that someone actually wants to send cows

into space so they can see if milk production

“falls” off during periods of zero gravity

yet you must ask your self if a new phrase

would soon come to be bandied about

maybe “the herd shot round the world”
