(From Scripture: Poem) Slapping My Donkey


Slapping My Donkey
(The idea for this poem came from the Book of Numbers in the Old Testament Chapter #22)

 

Today I ride my Donkey

With honor my word is sought

My Donkey she is my favorite ride

For years faithful she has been

To disobey me she has never tried

 

Toward promised riches I point her head

The path I choose she always will go

Yet today three times she disobeyed

She crushed my foot against the stones

If I had a sword she would now be dead

 

She opened her mouth and spoke to me

An Angel had opened her mouth and eyes

But in my arrogance and temper I did not see

The Angel of The Lord with sword in hand

My Donkey saved me from my bloody end
