Jacob and Esau
     by Jim Rapp

Did you ever have a fight with yourself? 

Your first idea seems so reasonable
           or witty
           or wise
           or otherwise. 

But then your brain posed an alternative;
a rebuttal no less.

The urge is to smother the newcomer
before anyone knows it was born;
to kill Jacob and let Esau live –
Esau have I loved; Jacob have I hated.
