Paul Escapes From Damascus

Who can escape a walled city when wanted?
By the resident garrison who were instructed
To arrest him by the Governor’s seal
Acting on King Aretas’ warrant and will
The Jews of Damascus played their card
The beholden king was obliged to deal
And bring their apostate enemy to heel
But God had other plans for Paul
Saintly helpers bundled him in a basket
But the walls were high and city gates locked
They winched him up and out by a window
Twas a gap in the tall wall-and lowered him
To miraculous safety on the other side
Garrison kept night watch not losing a stride
The morning discovery would destroy their pride
