The Man That Rebuilt Jericho - Poem by S.Ovwata Onojieruo

Joshua cursed a land
this not in a fairy strand
Joshua cursed a man
who with his power do what he can
Joshua cursed a city
and that to no one pity
Joshua destroyed a people
cursed and up in bumble.
then came him of whom he said
this to do with none to aid
and on the blood of his first son
the foundations he laid
and on his last the building raised.
Thus was it fulfilled, spoken of many centuries past
To him who rebuilt Jericho.

    Thus was it fulfilled, spoken of many centuries past
    To him who rebuilt Jericho. is it biblicial? is it true the way you described in the poem?
    or is the histroy of joshua something different? anyhow it was interesting to read your cogiations on the life of Joshua as you saw it. tony
