David

by Elvira

David,

                Or Davey

                                When Yahweh                  admonishes him

David,

                Son of Jesus

                Son of Adam

                                                                                Blessed

                Beyond belief

                                                                                Unmanned

                By his tears:

                “More!” “More” as

                A greedy babe                                  suckling

                His tired mother’s breast

David,

                Son of Yahweh

                Father of Jesus, the Nazerine

                                                                                Born

                In sanguine fluid

                                                                                Dies

                In secretions with bloodlust in between

                                                                                Staining

                His lineage scarlet

                Until his nativity

David

                Gladiator for Jehovah   

                Warrior King

                Shepherd boy                                   lusts

                For battle

                                                                                Taking

                Pleasure in decapitation

David,

                Whose last for Basheba                                becomes

                Murder

                                                                                Repented

                For centuries     and sometimes

                                                                                Emulated,

                As in Westminster           by

                Another King                                     riding                     himself

                Of a troublesome priest

David,

                                                                                Knows

                He will never shelther the word

                But still cannot                                  control

                His murderous ways.

David,

                Whose blood lust                             built

                A nation

                                                                                Lost

                Sons because envy and jealousy

                                                                                Gained

                A lineage             but                         lost

                An honor

David,   shepherd boy

                God’s King warrior

                Fulfiller of a prophecy

                (at the expense of others)

                Humbled old man

                Innocent youth

David-
