Oh to have the kind King
here to ask the
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.
