The Head of Ishbosheth

2 Sam. 4:8f

Well, they cut off the head of Ishbosheth
Said, they cut off the head o’ the wrong man!
Brought that head to David and said,
“Well, what do you think of this?
Behold, the son of Saul, your enemy!”
O this news was nothin’ but distress
Those sons of Rimmon made a mess! (5)
“You killed a righteous man, you fools!”
Yeah in his house and in his own bed.
Oh dread!  What can even be said?
So David gave a rough command (11)
Said to cut off their feet and hands (12)
Hang ’em all up by the pool at Hebron
These folks are my flesh and bone (5:1)
