DAVID AND GOLIATH

DAVID AND GOLIATH


David, the shepherd, a tender of sheep, 
Would pray to his God before he would sleep.
One day he awoke to the roar of beasts;
A bear and a lion in search of a feast.

David slew both with his knife and his hand,
Though still just a boy and not yet a man.
The Lord's love for David was proven once again,
When he challenged the champion of the Philistine men.

Goliath’s beastly fingers and hideous toes,
Made David more selective with the stones that he chose.
One for the giant, he knew he would slay,
Four more for his brothers who were laughing that day.

The giant told David, "I'll tear you apart;
The birds and the animals shall feast on your heart."
David yelled back, "I’ll soon see you dead,
And when I’m through I’ll cut off your head!"

The worst of all men, drew high with his arm,
Came forth to David to do him great harm.
The youth jumped ahead just as quick as a lynx; 
 A stone from his sling popped the giant where he thinks.

Blood and bone spewed forth as that devil fell down; 
A thousand pound soldier lie dead on the ground.
With Goliath’s own sword, David chopped off his head, 
Then took it to Jerusalem, to prove that he was dead.
