So Job died old and full of days

December 12, 2016

Crammed and jammed
Bursting with days
Job died old and full of days

So full of days
He died
Died from days clotted with friends,
Eliphaz, Bildad and
Zophar
And don’t forget Elihu
Late but stuffed with wisdom too
Friends certain and smug
Wiseacres knowing all
Everything about this life
Except of course the life of Job

So full of days
He died
Died from days God awed
The heavenly court and Satan dialogue
Travel reports and near endless silence
Lordly Master, God knowing all
Everything about the creation
Except of course the children of Job

So full of days
He died
Died from days teeming with nature
Treasury of snow, hems of oceans
The Venus hind birthing at dawn
The morning stars singing
Nature indifferent knowing all
Everything about the world
Except of course the emptiness of Job

Who died old and full of days
