Christian Poetry: David’s Roof

Christian Poetry: David’s Roof by Nelson Vincent Ayomitunde

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 with 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


This poem is inspired by the word of God through the salient lessons from the life of David. It's a call to repentance, purity and identification with God.
