Where have all the bibles gone?
It used to be a thing
Hotels and hostels
& similar types
There would be a brown or blue
‘Look,’ I said to my daughter, ‘In your bedside drawer!’
‘It’s empty,’ she replied.
They seem to have disappeared.
Did you know,
Soldier, judge and prophet
Determined who would fight alongside him
Through the water test?
They guys who knelt
And scooped water from the river
With their hands, were out
And those who lay,
on the bellies and lapped ‘like dogs’
For it was thought
That the kneelers were idolaters
Kneeling at every Tom, Dick, or Harry.
The belly layers,
Were the full-on, monotheists,
The, ‘No God Before Me’ folk.
I would have taken to my knees. Anything to get out of a bloody battle.
I don’t know where the bibles have gone.
One thought on “Where have all the bibles gone? (Can be sung to the melody of ‘Where have all the flowers gone? By Peter, Paul and Mary.)”
Yes, it’s a pity we can no longer expect a copy of the O or NT in the bedside table. For, as we know, there’s nothing like a good fairy tale to help you fall asleep in a strange bed.
