Please, Pharoah agree
To set Israel free
It's God's plan... can't you see?

My people must go
Your hard-heart said, "No"
It's God's plan... don't you know?

It's not a mistake
That rod became snake
It's God's plan... you awake?

It's not in your head
The river turned red
It's God's plan... been misled?

Due to your conceit
Dead frogs, how they reek
It's God's plan... feel defeat?

You felt much disgust
As gnats came from dust
It's God's plan... won't adjust?

You surely were warned
But flies, how they swarmed
It's God's plan... need reform?

Although Egypt cried
Your livestock still died
It's God's plan... tried to hide?

More troubles and toils
God struck you with boils
It's God's plan... more turmoil?

I heard your wail
When pelted with hail
It's God's plan... been derailed?

You lost some focus
When plagued with Locusts
It's God's plan... why not trust?

The contrast was stark
As light became dark
It's God's plan... no remark?

You could not function
When death took your son
It's God's plan... are you done?

No more will I preach
But please, I beseech
It's not a good day for the beach!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)

I loved this! I enjoyed the humor in the wording especially the last line. And yet, the truth came across quite clear.

Although, a day at the beach threw me off kilter, just a little :)...I completely enjoyed your fresh approach with this poem and the light humor within.
