To Touch

Standard

Touch that gives
Touch that takes
Touch that makes
And touch that fakes
Touch from hate
Or touch to wake
Touch is such
A bit too much
Complexity that
Longs to speak
Touch withheld
Stays out of reach
Touch too much
Or not enough
Touch for love
Or touch for luck
Touch for like
And touch to fuck
Touch from need
To do your deed
Touch to seed
Or grab in greed
In touch believe
The heart reveals
What it conceives
Then what it deals!

David and Goliath

Standard

Tiny thing a sling
To fling a stone
So primitive which flew
To slew Goliath
Fell from heights
He knew no more
His might so sore
It tumbled with a roar
To ground for David found
The little voice that told him
That he could and so he would
And when he did his world was rid
Of powers that had cowered him
A little stone
Against a mighty throne
Was all it took
For David, he was
Not alone
He had a little voice
That was his own
Which said he could
So David, of course, would…
