More Anomalies A – Z: King of Tyre

The word of the YHWH came to me: “Mortal, say to the King of Tyre, Thus says the Lord YHWH…

Oh, aren’t you so proud and so very vain
aren’t you the perfect seal of all wisdom,
dwelling in the heart of the seas, sitting
on the throne of a god?  You are a man
and nothing more.

                                What? Wiser than Daniel?
You say you have understanding of all
the mysteries and secrets of the stars,
and through understanding you have wisdom,
and from your great wisdom have come treasures…

Will you still mouth these empty words, vain king,
in the face of your killer?

                                                Will you still
claim that your heart is the heart of a god
when they unsheathe their sharp swords against you?
You will die in the rough hands of strangers;
this I declare,
                and my name is the LORD.

This is my third pass through the Alphabet with these Anomalies.  To read more of them, click here.
