  Elephant Scares People, Satan Tries Too! A Poem

by | Oct 18, 2014 | Poems

Elephant roams here and there

In Africa they are found everywhere

Looking for some fun to have one day

To scare some of the curious people away

‘Be careful find alternate routes’

Warns the man while he hoots. ‘

Attention listen carefully to me

An elephant you soon will see

A car squashed flat As easy as that.’

The scared man scurried far away

Other people watch and stay

Big elephant flaps his ears

Car reverse lights come on at the rear

Ready for flight and full of fear.

Again and again!

‘Now I think I have scared enough people for today’ a

nd the disinterested elephant ambles away.

Satan roams here and there on earth (1)

Then join the angels for some mirth

Trying to scare people so they curse

Or maybe doing something worse.’

But people watch and pray

People do not run away

Satan now concentrate on Job(1)

‘I will soil his righteous robe I will roar(2.)

I will torment Until that cursing event’

Again and again!

Job consider God’s wonders

And Satan now ponders

God has won this round. (3)

And Satan had not found

A way for man to be bound

So he ambles away.

1. Job 1: 7,8 . The Lord said to Satan, ‘Where have you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, >From roaming the earth and going to and fro.

1 Pet 5:8 – Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

3. Ps 112:1, 8 -Blessed be the man who fears the Lord … His heart is secure, he will have no fear, in the end he will look in triumph over his foes.
