Elijah's Lament

hearth cake and water
 
pursued
by ahab
and jezebel prophet
elijah ended up in the
desert
 
thirsty
hungry tired and
so unlike job he asked
his lord to end it all under
the broom
 
tree with
a noosed rope but
gabe the angel smacked him with its
wing and
 
said you
are a man not
a mayfly elijah
you need to climb horeb so eat
and drink
 
grumbling
he complained what
am i a horse that drinks
water i prefer ale or wine
so gabe
 
smacked him
again and he
ate the hearth cakes drank the
water and slept under the shrub
until
 
gabe smacked
him a third time
with its trumpet this time
shouting wake up sluggard and go
to the
 
mountain
already for
the lord has things to do
other than waiting for you there
as a
 
burning
bush and so
the prophet went to the
mountain because the mountain won't come to the
prophet//
