Scroll down for a solution to this problem.


Blue : green is 1 : 2.

Solution by George Carey.


An opponent smaller and weaker
Faces an adversary,
Bigger and stronger
A sentence used in sports, science, or justice
Sometimes also for somebody taller
Like Goliath who was huge
But David won, he had no fear
David’s victory showed his power
He had killed a lion and a bear
