Man – Woman

Don’t believe the feminist’s fib.



Woman came from a man’s rib.

How long is the floor, ceiling, or lengthy steps?

Length is for East to West and nor for massive depths

The dimension called “long,” Is used by every throng.


From “A” over yonder to “B” near at hand

Is the width of mammoth hall or room where we stand

From side to side, Is the measurement we call “wide.”


There’s the space from top to the bottom of a wall

By inches, yards, or feet, we know it is so “tall.”

Need I now mention, Height is the third dimension.


Why take three stages, listing what’s known by all

Because three dimensions make up each famous hall

And God is three in One: Father, Spirit, and Son.


Man is also triune, image of those Three,

There’s spirit, soul, and body in you and you and me,

The body’s buried in sod, Spirit returns to God.


But, ah, the third part, eternal, living soul,

Satan tries to snatch it from its long destined goal,

But Christ bled and died, That the soul be sanctified.


Time also seems to come in units of three,

Present, future-coming, and time that used to be.

Even children learn so soon, That time is triune


Water, oh so common upon God’s footstool earth,

(It’s found to cover seven seas with its damp girth)

Is also a trinity, Whether fresh or brimy from the sea.


Cold it comes in pellets or ice is well known.

Steam is hot, hot “water” in a state all-its-own.

The third realm is water-wet, Three stages but one, yet.
