Gospel Clerihews

The apostle John
dropped his nets at dawn
followed Jesus with the ten
all became fishers of men


Simon’s son Judas
by his betrayal showed us
it’s not enough to meet God
if a different path we trod


Today’s Form for All prompt at dVerse Poets Pub is a lesson the Clerihew. I just started an in-depth study of the book of John so thought I’d write about a couple of famous people from that book. Head on over the dVerse to see who others are writing about in short verse.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Your gospel renderings are sweet, & do gently rock the fun prompt. You were right to expect mine to be politically oriented.

    • It has always astounded me that Judas lived with Jesus for 3 years, saw all the same things the other 11 did, and yet betrayed Him because what Judas saw didn’t match up with what he expected the Messiah to be. He was walking a path of expectations and couldn’t see the reality in front of him that was so much better.
