Flash Writing ~~ a short poem using 55 words

Agnes and I

I name her Agnes
When I, old and cold,
she was my bed friend,
slight, a young virgin

That was what I needed
to keep me warm
and that, I was told
for long cold winters

No objection I had,
new companion
When Dad was young
his girl was called Agnes

King David,
First Kings, 1:1 to 4*

"David
1 1-4 King David grew old. The years had caught up with him. Even though they piled blankets on him, he couldn’t keep warm. So his servants said to him, “We’re going to get a young virgin for our master the king to be at his side and look after him; she’ll get in bed with you and arouse our master the king.” So they searched the country of Israel for the most ravishing girl they could find; they found Abishag the Shunammite and brought her to the king. The girl was stunningly beautiful; she stayed at his side and looked after the king, but the king did not have sex with her.

...the Bible really could compete with modern day soap operas I think... and outdo them, indeed!

(Or in other words, "The things that you're liable to read in your Bible, they ain't necessarily so!")

Yes, Bible stories have many soap opera plots in them.
