twas an illustrated bible

that was given to the youth
the words to him were foreign
but the pictures spoke the truth
 
a fearful naked couple
who were fleeing from a park
a joyous bearded man
danced in the sunshine on an ark
 
a lad who smiled triumphant
at a giant on the ground
and a sage that held two tablets
that he'd climbed a peak and found
 
and a mighty river parting
as a caravan pushed through
a boy lay on a slab
as older man, a dagger, drew
 
and he tried to piece the story
but the segments didn't fit
so he closed that little bible
and forgot it in a bit
