The elder sons of Father Israel,
in a moment less than filial,
sold their brother Jacob
to the first passing mob,
who were, by chance, the sons of Ishmael.
But wait a minute, that isn’t right,
there’s a slight contradiction in sight -
In one of these lines I
read he was rescued by
a caravan of Midianites.
Genesis 37: 28, 36 / 39: 1
