My classmate Mary C. was kind enough to send me this poem she wrote! 

“Big and Bad vs. Tiny”

Shepherd boy on his way

To visit soldiers far away

Seven he knew, for they were kin

Brothers, all, and tan of skin

Upon arrival, David saw

A giant – the biggest of all

Goliath was the brute’s name

Far and wide was his fame

Goliath denied God and rattled,

“Let the best of you come battle”

But the Israelites, instead of fight

Just turned a pale white

With a prayer, young David declared,

“I’ll fight him! I’m not scared!”

His brothers said, “You’re just a boy!

Go home and play with your toys!”

To King Saul David went

In the hope the people would relent

Armor was brought for little Dave

Though too big, David did not wave

“Five smooth stones and God

Will be all I need. Nothing odd.”

So David met the giant with only sling

Fight begun, stone hurled with a “zing!”

Big Bad Goliath was now dead

So David cut off his head

Philistines may be horrified,

But Israel was saved, and God glorified!

Note from Katie: Now, I don't think we should cut off our enemies heads, but this was in the Old Testament, a time of wars, raiding etc. : )
