The Dialogue

“Just shake him
And he falls
I tell ya’.
Shake him and he falls.
Remove the perks
And pandering
The sense of
E’er do well
And in short time
This Job of yours
Will court my gates
Of Hell.”

“You have him
For your worst
A season
House and home
And health.
All standing lost
The hedge removed
Men’s praises too;
That heart is still
My dwelling place.
Now do the worst
You do.”

Friends add
Into the mix
Their error:
“Why God strikes
So hard."
They charge the man
With hidden sin
And judgment earned.
He strains into
The storm to hear
His Master’s voice
And mercy learned.
