When Eagles are Sugar Ants

When eagles are sugar ants. (See ’em?)

two eagles soar in front of huge cumulus cloud and deep blue sky

“Do you know the laws of the heavens?
Can you set their dominion over the earth?
Can you command the clouds
so that a flood of water covers you?
Can you send the lightning bolts on their way?
Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?
Who has put wisdom in the heart
or given understanding to the mind?
Who has the wisdom to count the clouds?
Or who can tilt the water jars of the heavens
when the dust hardens into a mass
and the clods of earth stick together?
.
. . . Does the eagle soar at your command
and make his nest on high?
—Job 38:33-38, 39:27
