Seems like Beelzebub’s winning all over again,
smugly cavorting and grinning all over again.
God and the weather are angry and threaten us now.
Adam and Eve must be sinning all over again.
Who will be Noah and notice a need for an Ark?
The number of righteous is thinning all over again.
Flames lick the eaves, acrid smoke rips the nose,
and Nero has come violinning all over again.
Now to earth’s wanderers who will give refuge and
make them at home with her spinning all over again?
We say that we love, we want to believe it, but
why does it feel like tailspinning all over again?
The proverbs of ancients hammer our latterday
numbskulls with dire disciplining all over again.
It was all said before but since nobody listens—
must we go back to beginning all over again?
ALL OVER AGAIN
