naaman’s rap

a leper was healed
and his name
was naaman
he was the leader
of the forces
of aram
he fought and slew
achieving
fortune and fame
but when you’re dying
tell me, emcee,
what’s in a name?

he was healed by
the lord
in miraculous fashion
but when it came time
to get back
into action
he knew aram
wouldn’t tolerate the lord
and any wrongdoing
would result
in the
sword

so naaman asked elisha
can you help me out
brother?
i know the lord is
god, but i
must worship another.
elisha told him
irie –
son, please don’t worry;
go now in peace,
have no fears –
life is blurry.

Based upon 2 Kings, Chapter 5
