Goliath the Awesome
 
Six cubits and a span he stood,
Goliath, the Philistine from Gath;
size made him an intimidating giant,
however you do the Math.


Five thousand shekels, his armour,
brass , like the helmet he wore.
He shouted a challenge to the Israelites,
who, of course, all held him in awe.


Forty days he stood defiant,
his challenge not yet taken.
Only David, young and weedy,
neither by lion nor wild bear shaken.


Five stones were all his ammunition,
with a leather sling his gun.
With the first stone David slew Goliath,
had the Philistines on the run.


Thus David, son of Bethlehem's Jesse,
became attached to King Saul's throng.
He grew in might, in strength and valour,
staying loyal to God his whole life long.
