Job's Comforter

The house has a roof and no walls.
The phone rings and it’s a wrong call.
There are foods that do not have plates.
Pricey, new shoes that do not fit.
A new visitor just broke in,
Telling her that she has no kin.

A friend is there to destroy her;
A friend to whom she can’t confer;
Like having a snake for a pet;
Like having a coat that is wet;
Like a storm during a full moon,
But people think that he’s so good.

He is like a rose and its thorns.
They don’t hear him cheer as she mourns.
Friend in good times; devil in bad.
A friend who she regrets she had.
