Job's Dilemma: Sinful Man, Untamed Nature

Nature's, raw fury can no man withstand, nor deeds of malcontent brothers understand Natural calamities from: wind, water, divine command; Man-made disasters by: leader, follower, brigand Nature's untamed, mystical hand; Man's marauding, sentient brand Unseen forces generating chaos in each, hurricane band ; Contrasted with marksman's contrived, murderous stand Without warning, listless gales shiver each, balmy strand; Foreordained. work strikes with targeted violence planned Mysterious, random tornadoes o'er storm trough spanned; Calculating armies o'er demarcated lines fanned Perilous, isolated earthquakes no instrument had scanned; Callous looters colluding when supply does not meet demand Spontaneous, volcanic emissions scar the land; Gangs marked by sign; through attrition sculpting an urban island Unforeseen floods lawful lives, endeavors do remand Dictator coffers overflow; with taxes, kickbacks panned
