Meaningless, everything, said
Qoheleth thinking everyone
Would know what he meant
And no one did, or rather
His critics added interpretations
To make him make sense
According to whatever was current.

Even those now wanting to let
Him mean what he meant
Don’t ask to whom or what
This all is believed to mean
Something for.  Is it solipsistic
To let someone mean everything
To me?  Perhaps he limited

Meaning by time.  That would be
Meaningless to me existing
Here alone now rummaging
Through old books not looking
For meaning but believing
Though it may be missing
It once was everything.
