Playing Both Sides

When things were getting,
out of hand,
David was forced,
to leave his own land.
He went where no one,
would think to find -
the land of the Philistines,
for a time.
He rose through the ranks,
and made a name,
for himself,
and even a few friends,
as he started to shine.
The same people he rivaled,
for many years,
he now fought beside them,
and called them his peers.
After his years of service,
David was treated as a spy.
So he was forced again,
to flee or die.
there was not a whole lot to say.
He was needed back,
in Israel,
So sometimes,
what seems wrong,
might actually be right,
just as long,
as we know the truth,
and do not loose sight.
