Balaam had a talking donkey
Darn thing nearly drove him bonkey
Blasted thing would not move a bit
Even after it was hit.

In the donkey was God disguised
But Balaam was not a bit surprised
To have a donkey that could speak
A creature that was low and meek

A creature with barely a thought
And one that surely ought
To only make a braying sound
Was laying on the ground

Spilling out words of caution true
For Balaam to most carefully rue
The wisdom of the beast was right
But Balaam’s intelligence was slight

I think if I ever met a talking beast
I would take the time at least
To find out what it had to say
Though it might turn my feet to clay

I guess it proves a sad old tale
That human logic does often fail
And that animals have a certain way
To give us all a better day.

From this poem, one could learn much. God will not put up with resistant from anyone. Even, if it means Him getting beast to talk. It can be checked out in Numbers 22. This poem, I think it is good - as it may send many to the Bible.

I agree with your poem. I have two cats and a dog and they speak to me all the time. Most of the time they say give me food and let me out, but, sometimes, well, they just want to be loved. Hey, wait a minute, that might be me talking! Anyway, like your poem brings to light, I do, also, have animals in which I can relate.

God bless,

-Bob
