Leviathan - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Believer’s state you’re a large alligator
No creature known can break iron as sticks
I, unlike them science, religion, philosophers
Know your true identity
Yet to be your prey is a mistake
You, are eternal, unlike any other formed to flesh
Didn't die because you were forbidden
The surface to strive with its above host
Locked away inside the earth
Under ground you were safe
You didn't hear the curse
The one creature God punished but survives
The Lord cherished its wisdom and beauty
A creature ruling instead of man
God admired its pride and durability
Before sin and death came to the land
You were before Eve or Adam
You were big in Eden even then
You asked Eve what God had defined
The tree they were not to eat
Now you have grown into a behemoth
You block river when you cross
Your language is before man on earth
You are Leviathan
