Nebuchadnezzar


A beast I’d become

Thinking all lived

And breathed by me

My City so proud

Stretching far as

The eye could see

My word as a God

Speaking dreams

Into fact for me

Ripe for a fall.



A dream spoiled my sleep

Of a broad and

Capacious tree

Shelter for all

And a roost for

Each bird I’d see

Cut to the ground

Save a trunk

Of ignominy

Pride’s nasty fall.



The beast came to me

Stripped a King

Of his sanity

Off to the wilds

So the sad rantings

None might see

Just like an ox

In the dews

As that toppled tree

Til wisdom came.



And I’m just a man

Whom the God

Of eternity

Brought to his knees

So the pomp and

The pride might see.

Daniel was right.

Chastened now

I am washed and free.

Praise to God’s name.
