The Golden Calf

Contributed by randyjohnson on Thursday, 30th July 2015 @ 03:40:12 PM in AEST
Topic: ChristianPoetry

The Egyptians made a golden calf and worshipped it.
When the Lord learned what they did, he had a fit.
They stabbed God in the back even though he saved them from being slaves.
What they did was reprehensible, it was a shameful way to behave.

Those people were terrible and they had no gratitude.
Moses and God were both disgusted by their attitude.
God is the only one who should be worshipped, not a golden calf.
When people do such things, they will suffer the Lord's wrath.

cool poem. not to be nitpicky, but it was the Jews that worshipped the golden calf. That's why Moses shattered the tablets. Baal was the name of the calf. They did it while Moses was busy rock carving from a one on one with The Man.

Those Egyptians were right prics though- you got that correct.

I like the flow and style and idea. Well done!
