David and Goliath, 1915, by Ilya Repin (Wikimedia)

He was so certain (says The Book)
That when the day was done,
The giant wouldn’t be alive.
Why was it, then, that what he took
To fight was not a single stone,
But rather, five?

Len Krisak is an American poet. He has taught at Brandeis, Northeastern University, and Stonehill College.
