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 God demanding pay
Men who quote those 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
