The ‘Haman: The Creepiest Creep’ Bible Story Poem is part of the ‘Gruesome and Gory Bible Story’ poem collection. We hope your 7-11 year olds love them!
Haman was the creepiest creep
That you have ever met.
He hatched a plan to kill the Jews
Every man, wife, child and pet.
King Xerxes was a silly king
He made his wife a crown
When drunk he threw a party
Her invite she turned down.
“He’ll have to find a new queen”
His advisors all agreed.
Queen Vashti: never seen again
A new queen they would need.
Esther was a beauty
An orphan and a Jew.
Mordecai like a father –
Her own she never knew
Through all the land the soldiers
Came marching in the homes
And grabbing all the girls; their stuff,
Their clothes, their shoes, their combs.
Esther was took! Oh what a sad scene!
I’m sure you would agree.
Spent months and months in queen school
Til Xerxes she did see.
They taught her how to be queen
They splashed her with perfume
She asked them what the King would like
They led her to a room.
Xerxes saw the beauty
in Esther’s bright young eyes
Forced to try to whoo him
Her faith she did disguise.
Mordecai had told her,
“Don’t tell him you’re a Jew!”
Esther thought and then agreed
“Obey you? I will do.”
Xerxes made her Queen E
The other girls did cry.
Esther lived in splendour
Mordecai waved goodbye.
Now Haman was king’s general,
So upon the streets each time
Mordecai was supposed to bow.
And he didn’t – it was a crime.
But Mordecai was a hero
He’d saved the good king’s life.
Haman was just angry!
He told his mean cruel wife.
He built the gallows. Built them high!
He wanted all to see!
He’d string him up right by his neck
And watch him die with glee.
But God had bigger plans than that,
Oh Haman was a twit!
God you know has fun with us
He has a lot of whit!
Haman had now told the king
Of his big wicked plan
The king he’d listened and been fooled
By the creepy creep conman.
Haman penned a letter quick
He used the King’s own seal.
“I’ve set a date to kill the Jews
My dream is now made real!”
Mordecai was saddened
That soon they all would die.
He wrapped himself in sackcloth
The palace he walked by.
He sent a letter to the Queen,
“Have you heard the news?
Haman’s tricked the king and now
He wants to kill the Jews!
Esther you were sent here
For such a time as this.
It’s not so you can play queen
And live in lots of bliss!”
Esther read the letter.
She knew her day had come.
“I’ll pray and fast for three days
This life was once humdrum!”
The king could refuse! Her life she could lose!
The spectre he’d have to raise,
Oh what did she think and what did she feel
waiting those long three days?
“Though I may die, this life I will try,
To do the best I can!
To free my people from this mess
And Haman’s wicked plan.”
The time had come for Esther
To approach the king once more
His spectre he reached out to her
Queen Esther he did adore.
“Come to me for tea tonight
And bring your friend Haman”
Once they were there she asked again
As part of her game plan.
That night the king could not sleep,
He read the book of Law
He heard a name he recognised
“A hero!” he said with awe.
“What would you do for a hero?”
The king he asked Haman,
He dreamed the king would now reward,
Himself; the creep conman.
Oh what would he do? And what would he say?
This really was a treat!
Would he want money or would he want fame?
Well both would be quite neat!
Perhaps I’d like a new house
or maybe I’d like a cow,
He thought about it long and hard
And then he took a bow.
“I’d give him your great horse, Lord.
I’d give him your new robe.
I’d send a man to scream and shout
To shout all round the globe.
‘This is the man the king has picked
To celebrate and honour
His name will be made famous yet,
His name they’ll cry and holler!’ “
“That’s great!” King cried, “Now you’re the One!
I’m sure you won’t quite mind.
Mordecai his name you’ll yell,
From left, right, front, behind!”
Haman could not believe the news!
He followed the Kings request
Mordecai was praised by all –
He’d never felt so blessed!
The night had come for Esther’s meal
The King he never knew
That Esther then would soon reveal
She really was a Jew.
“Good king you may not realise
This Haman is so feral!
His scheme will wipe my people out
My life is now in peril!
The king went out! He walked about
But Haman he did stay
He begged the Queen to save his life;
As hers he did Betray.
He fell on the couch that Esther was on
The King he was outraged
“Will he now try to kill my wife?
Is he just that deranged?”
The soldiers grabbed that vile man
They covered up his face
They did it swift they did it quick
As if it was a race.
“Haman has some gallows
Meant for Mordecai.
Hang this evil guy on it!”
The King at once did sigh.
Mordecai was given his job
In that you can believe!
Haman, no one thought about
And not one man did grieve.
No more were Jews in danger
Their lives had all been saved.
The country could now live in peace
The people cheered and waved.
So what’s this story all about?
You may begin to think,
Not just that killing can be quick
Or land you in the clink.
The meaning is much more than that;
So listen in now please.
Make sure you’re ready, sit up straight,
Your mind we will appease.
God’s purpose is big! It’s not just for you!
You’re blessed for others too.
What you’ve been given, share about,
It’ll change your whole world view!
God will lead you! Just obey!
Your path to be unfurled
Don’t sit in your own comfort zone!
Get out and change the world!
