Goliath

you dared me

to see the ugly,

and i stood there

unwavering.

when triggers

no longer scare,

will i find,

you disappear?

it was

the tiny shrew

that became

the billion slew.

the stone

in my hand

is the power

to command.

It was courage, a strong will, and precision optics that took down the giant. The word slew, when used as a noun, derives from the Gaelic word meaning “multitudes”.
