Samson and Delilah

Samson and Delilah (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Samson, eye your lesser morning
With true strength just leeched away
Where your locks of such adorning
Where precision for your prey?

Oh such mighty power is falling
And your God’s abandoned you
Where the surety of your calling
Where such fealty as is due?

Sweet seduction, siren singing
Touch that melts the hardened heart
All of nature here is bringing
Unjust endings where you’d start

Ah! But where you find your pleasure
There you find the seat of lies
You are taken by such treasure
Of a traitor’s milky thighs
