Sonnet: David and Goliath


God chose a shepherd boy to be the king
Of Israel, when Goliath, the giant
Had threatened everyone, and vowed to bring
Israelites on their knees by his win-chant!

David, the lad had pebbles and a sling;
Goliath had a mighty sword and shield;
But David came in name of God to sing,
And the Philistine had but to yield!

For, God supports the righteous ones to win;
The evil-minded have to bite the dust;
God abhors devils and the mortal sin;
The righteous always hope in Lord and trust.

God permits Goliath to talk in vain;
But David has His love and strength to gain!

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
