“Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him? Let him who accuses God answer Him.” — Job 40:2

Ode to Job

Misfortune begets misfortune,
a cycle devouring dignity,
breeding self-contempt.

You with head held high, beware.
It’s only a hair’s breadth
from each of us.

No one sees perfectly
the forces at play
behind the curtain.

That’s one thing certain,
though just to be sure,
go ask Job.
