Jonah

Schooled in a strict tradition
of evenly positioned high/low notes
governed by definite rules,
Jonah’s song had few grace notes
wrath set the rhythm
all the way down in his short scale
with no room for change
once the pattern was set
is it any wonder, then
he failed to understand
and grumbled at the Musician’s
last minute reorchestration?
