Joseph was Jacob’s favorite son.
His brother’s thought this was no fun.
When he received a special coat,
It could be he was apt to gloat.
His dreams added fuel to the fire
And further raised his brother’s ire.
Even his father wasn’t pleased.
You think we’ll worship you? They teased.
When sent to on his brothers check,
They said, there’s that pain-in-the-neck.
Now we have a chance him to kill.
Reuben said his blood do not spill.
Throw him in this pit is my plan.
They sold him to a caravan.
By Potiphar he was then bought.
Everything went the way it ought.
Although by Joseph she was shunned,
Potiphar to his wife listened.
Even in prison he did well.
The meaning of dreams he did tell.
The cupbearer soon forgot it seems.
Until the Pharaoh had some dreams.
Now this happened two years later,
Joseph was the translator.
Joseph then a ruler became.
And his brothers he did not blame.
He said it was all in God’s plan.
Forgiveness he gave, man to man.
For getting the short end of the stick,
Joseph would be a very good pick.
So when you think life is not fair,
Of God’s presence please be aware.
Believing in God as you should,
All things work together for good.
