SONGS OF DAVID

          SONGS OF DAVID 

King David when he wrote his songs
Of flying passions—soul’s dark days
What would he think of TV pleas
From "men of G_d" demanding pay--
Men who quote his wingward words
Of comfort meant to carry hope---
I think he’d sharpen his dark sword
Or like a Texan ‘get a rope’

    I'll leave Job alone for now, but I'm with you on this. My two pence shall not land in the coffers of salvation marketing Gurus. Enjoyed...John
