I was moved by the baa’ed and went with evolution…but now I see that it was not a “real” goat…it was a scapegoat…and the emphasis was on the word “scape.”  Therefore, I re-submit line 10 to read as follows: He didn’t know how to mime, not with cloven hooves. Someone yanked the scape from his mouth, shredding it across his teeth.  Those scepter-like scenic patterns were all he lived for…now they were gone forever.”

Get scapegoated enough and you really do turn into a literal scapegoat, hooves and all.

Yes, I read it like that.
Cloven hooved stories are a-bounding.

Cloven-hooved characters are evolving.
