what-roah-did
Ford Madox Brown, 1871
What Roah did
rowing down the Nile
carry his people to freedom
slave and master at odds.
Two by two the couples left
families of their own
houses built and generations
blessed by sweat and tear.

What Road did
his arrogance too much to bare
families watched their heritage
under a scrupulous divide.
Armageddon vanishes
the measure of a mind
prophecy come true
before the skeptic’s eye.

Urban Dictionary: Roah, the state of zen reached when one is fucked up. A measure of how fucked up someone is.
