Poem: Leviticus

I'm trying to get together an Advent poetry series like the one we did for Holy Week. While looking for those, I came across this one.


Take care ye people of what you eat
Of fowl animals which bring defeat
The carcasses of an unclean soul
Shall rain diseases Leviticus has told,

Eat only the food that brings long life
The herbs and vegetables prevent strife
Avoid those shallow creeping things
Like vultures, owls, and those birds with wings,

Remember Nadab and Abihu
The sons of Aaron and what they miscue
Moderation is a key to being blessed
Never consume too much in excess.
