Joseph was the penultimate son of Jacob
Preceding by birth only little Benjamin
Joseph was the much loved son of his Pop
Sired in old age, to whom he was never mean
His father made him a coat of many colours
Affection manifests in deeds, so do the honours
Joseph had a gift of dreams and interpretation
He dreamed he was the head of the Galaxy
And his siblings and parents bowed in submission
His siblings were piqued-who was he in the hierarchy?
Shall this teenage upstart now claim dominion?
