BEHEMOTH, by Dawn Jacobs.

Behemoth
I once new a behemoth
who went on a rage
his beautiful wife stayed at home
but it seemed more like a cage

Many were afraid of this behemoth I knew
but for me, I got close, I was one of the few

If you have time to spare
I'll be happy to declare
the tale of his life
and that of his wife

Three children they had
only it was quite sad
one ran away with his neighbor of choice
the second found God in his need to rejoice
for mayor, his youngest boy ran
this would increase his power span

To this behemoth, it was quite clear
he must create a plan there was no time to spare
the plan of insurrection
was his only intention
his wife thought him scary
she lost desire to tarry

I saw a gleam in his eye as he spoke
his boy was elected by vote
with his heavy handed rule
he taught his own sort of school
many of the townsmen bled
many of the townsmen fled

Behemoth
For those who protested
their home was infested
no turning back
on this criminal act

With a look of his eye
some poor soul would soon die
he was feared by all
there was no one to call
The ground shook asunder
for the fear I was under
I searched for the egress
for I could not suppress
my uncontainable surprise
of his powerful comprise

Now of course you know my friends
that I made it out in the end
I heard later on
he was referred to as "Don"
in the end he met his fate
it wasn't a moment to late
he was hoisted by his own petard
he now decays in his own backyard
back behind the old decrepit trees
his wife now works on bended knees
she has learned to be bold
or so I am told
this scarlet in vein
created her own power reign
I can no longer reminisce
Or soon I will be missed

Now this is the end of my tale
I hope I didn't fail
to entertain you folks
