1 Samuel 25 Condensed Version

Samuel dies
People mourn
David moves
To Maon
Nabal’s mean
Got lots of food
Abby’s nice
And in a good mood
David sends
Ten men to Nabal
They ask for food
Instead get shoed

David hears
Of this let-down
Sharpens his sword
To kill this clown
Abby hurries
To gather food
Before Dave kills
Any of Nabal’s dudes
Abby falls
At David’s feet
And pleads for peace
Pleads for peace

David puts
His sword down
Abby’s courage
Deserves a crown
Nabal parties
All night long
Has a stroke
After dawn
Abby’s a widow
But not for long
Cause Dave likes Abby
They marry and are happy
