Poetry: David's Roof

It was a war in spring
when David the king
Set Joab and mighty men
Far as Rabbah to make an empty den
But Dave stayed behind

That evening
He wandered wondrously
Up the roof of the palace

There, he saw
She who bathed
in purity

She's Bae!

"Go find her out", he says

"She is Bathsheba, wife of Uriah"

"So, go get her", he commands

Then, they laid
And she was full
She sends word
"I am pregnant"

Dave sends for Uriah
In deceit to lay
That night with Bathsheba

At the entrance Uriah did sleep

Dave heard and was cruel

Why would the ark lay in tent
And I'm merry?
Uriah asks.

The morrow comes wth your death letter
And your hands shall deliver them

In the fore, he dies
Dave hears
Sin covered
Wife mourns
New Couple

The fruits of the rooftop encounter
Will drop on your head someday

Inspiration: 2nd Samuel 11:1-end

    I love the Bae part of this poem.

    But the truth is the truth. Our generation suffers gross moral decadence when it comes to sexual matters. We need to keep fighting against all sorts of impurity. God help us.
