596 Poor,Old, Ordinary Lemach 5-8-16 go to 580 for word search

Forgotten between praises for
his championship-antiquarian father,
Methuselah
and his “THE END IS COMING!!!!!”
preaching son,
Noah,
Lemach,
who was 182 when
Noah
was born,
waited 500 years for
Noah
to begat him some grandsons!
(What the hell was Noah doing?
Building ark prototypes?)
Finally,
Noah
got busy and comes.
Shem,
Japheth
and Ham
when
Lemach
was 682, so he had just
95 years to frolic with his progeny,
only to die, suddenly, surprisingly,
at the young age of 777.
Family life can be fatal.
At least he missed the flood
by 5 years.
I wonder if he would have
gotten on board or would he
have enjoyed sufring?
