Just what is a Backstabber?
Well let us take a look.
It might just be your friend
Secretly calling you a crook.
A Backstabber has no stomach
For combat face to face.
Throwing knives at your back
From a safe hiding place.
A Backstabber works covertly
Sometimes sharing lunch at noon.
Playing word games at the table
Gathering data for your doom.
A deadly enemy out in the open
Will often warrant praise.
But a Backstabber is a coward
And is deserving of our rage.
Have you ever took a stab
At the back of a friend?
Did you know that the Bible
Condemns backstabbing as sin?
Before you throw that next dagger
Take this warning from above
Lest you reap a backstabbing
From someone you love!



“He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with one who flatters with his lips.” (Proverbs 20:19)
