Acumen

Oh to have the kind King

here to ask the

women standing

at the well for water.

And to have them admit their shame

of looking for a loving husband

only to be seen as ones who are blessed.

And to remember the only woman who

was called ‘daughter’ by Jesus

to be the one who was publicly shamed

for being unclean.

Why, oh why, are women looked at as snakes

or pigs with a nose ring by those who profess?

And why are their lives

so publicly shamed when in reality

it’s not as it seems?

It’s simple to say,

those professor’s are ashamed of themselves

so dash on others

to pump up their deflated chests

but by wearing chains

they are in distress.
