Leviathan - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Stories told of you being an alligator or a whale,
in those tales do it as a stick,
neither as male known breaking iron.

I deny those spoken fact,
in react show mentioned identity,
a truth given of you in the Holy Text acts.

You're locked inside of the earth held,
under its muck in ground you'll live,
in cry alone there you socked were safe.

Image by God punished as hock,
you didn't hear had curse and its foolishness spoke,
yet the one poked still to survive.

High Lord belled this gigantic eel,
it's before death feature as well as law,
admired hissing of snake shakes in tell pride.

You asked of Eve what God conveyed about a tree,
a big to see now a behemoth,
not her to run or flee to eat by giant.

Able with large body tour to block river crossing,
witty set language to pour,
actions era man souring the earth.

You're our world former fast ruler,
before man as a mast over trees,
cast worm given us a remembrance Leviathan.
