Let us continue the erotic tale
of David the king and the alpha male.
So full of testosterone and desire
he wanted to take her into his boudoir.
Bathsheba, wife of Uriah was her name
And they both began this dangerous game.
Following desires and not common sense
they made love ignoring the consequence.
When night was over and their passion spent
Bathsheba had a bath and home she went
Then some time later I’m sorry to say
That she was now in the family way.
She wrote telling David the news so bad
Saying “I am with child and You’re the dad! ”
David did not like hearing of his shame
So he planned and schemed to avoid the blame
