Buried Poem by Edward Kofi Louis


Yahshua Ben Nun was buried in the hill country of Ephraim,
Like the flint knives of circumcision;
But Hebron was given to Caleb after he drove away the sons of Anak.
Like the marriage among cousins,
Like the marriage among relatives,
Like the marriage among tribes,
Like the marriage among the same clan;
But today, the Yebusites and the Benyaminites are in Yerusalem.
Of the Amonites, Perizzites, Canaanites and Heittites;
Of the Girgashites, Hivites and the Yebusites;
Yahshua Ben Nun was buried in the hill country of Ephraim.
Onec at war! But today they are living together;
With the works of the Creator to put us in order.
