Waters, Frogs and Beasts

When God sent Moses, darkness came, and Aaron was his priest.

Then things went on, from bad to worse, for waters, frogs and beasts.

—–

First infestations, hail and lightning flashing through the land.

When locusts came and ate the food; not even trees could stand. 

—–

The king defied. The firstborn died. At last the people left.

But, not until they’d borrowed gold and things they thought were best.

—–

“It’s only for a week or so, a time of little length.”

They left no forwarding address, just took a nation’s strength.

  1. Thanks for the response. I think it’s considerably shorter than all the verbiage in the source text, but gets to the nub of it, and rhymes!
