Jack – Décima

Jim jumps about with wayward Jack.
They think they know the way to go,
but tend to graze where demons grow
who’ll watch them fatten then attack.

The Lord makes sure Joe doesn’t lack.
He’s led to pastures green and pure.
Through evil valleys he’ll endure
when led on paths of righteousness.
With oil anointed, fed, and, yes,
through length of days he’ll dwell secure.

Ronovan Hester offers the rhyme word “jack” to be used in an A line of a décima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC for this week’s challenge. I am thinking of Psalm 23.

  1. This is a very good poem, Frank. I’ve read a few others on your blog that are in a similar vein and I think they would make such a lovely poetry book for young adults who could benefit from your beautiful messages.
