Jacob

In these crazy days

Of twenty twenty,

Is the road branching

Into three,

Inflation, recession, depression,

Or is it a downhill run

Through and into

All three,

In crazy times

I think about Jacob,

No – not the biblical one –

I am not that old,

Jacob, who has passed away

Used to say,

You can’t change

What has been done,

All you can do

Is step between the piles

Of bullshit

And make your way,

Jacob never did say

What to do

When the bull

Has flooding diarrhea,

And there is no stepping

Around.
