A Look At Three Bible Stories

Delilah and Sampson
A biblical pair
He, strong and handsome
‘Till she snipped off his hair

His power was due to his mane of great length
But her hair-raising stunt sapped all his great strength

Noah populated his ark by twos
One chosen female with one chosen male
Stuck with the male Noah would choose
It was for females a most unfair tale

She didn’t get her favored choice of lover
Noah decided who she’d lay with under-cover

A story hard to sell with today’s propriety
Is a parable, The Ten Virgin Tale
It’s much too imaginary for today’s society
Where a search for virginity would most certainly fail

I suppose, way back then, it could probably happen
But could so many guys have been sexually nappin’?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
