The Lion’s Den

By louis gander

King Darious signed – and it became law.

Beware of the rulers. Beware of their flaw.

Beware of their rule. Beware of their claw.

Beware of their lion. Beware of their jaw.

“I tell you Daniel, he is the king –

you must obey in everything!

Behind his seal, he signed in pen!

Beware of death in lion’s den!

“I ask you Daniel, hear all the din?

They know the house you’re living in!

Bow down in public now and then!

Beware of vicious lion’s den!

“Oh, tell me Daniel, what is the use?

Prayer every day is pure abuse!

You pray to God – again, again!

Beware, lest thrown in lion’s den!

“Oh, tell me Daniel, what did you do?

The fault – all yours, you got into!

You’re not at all like other men!

Beware! You’re now in lion’s den!

“Now tell me Daniel, what’s God doin’ –

shutting jaws of every lion?

He stopped a feast that should have been!

A miracle in lion’s den!

“Oh, tell me Daniel, could it be –

that they took you out and now you’re free?

We’re so amazed, we scream ‘AMEN!’

Beware of God and not the den!

“Please show us Daniel, how to pray

a humble prayer just like you say.

We’ll pray sincerely every day

and follow God the faithful way!”
