Samson V

Continuing the tale in poetic form and based on the Book of Judges:

Anon - Halatosis

Samson
by Michael Romani

V

Too often living by pleasure and whim
Seeing only what is in front of him
Yet, still the living God is within
There as it is and as it shall begin

In secret council, the Philistines raise
Doubts on gods beyond symbols for false praise
Gods are only a means of control
And the king is his god that he extols

True belief is a spark to be extinguished
The kingdom belongs to the king distinguished
The king is his own god sitting in his throne
This is the truth by which he'll be known

The foolish king teaches this to his son full grown
As the way to rule his kingdom as he is duly shown
Gods simply steal away as silent as a midnight thief
And the prince takes great pleasure in this disbelief
