THE BROKEN PITCHER

The intact pot homes the GLORY of the stream

Lo! She was sent to the stream of LIFE

A broken pot never comes in its brand

A punctured pot is never worthy of the stream

Ha! The pot could no longer bring home the glory of the stream

'Cos she is not only punctured but broken

She is now worse than a basket full of holes

Her MORTAL of virginity has been shamefully returned

'Cos no piece of white turned RED on her bridal day

She caused her father to hang for shame

Her mother, sentenced to everyday mourning for the new FAMILY REPROACH

And she never stops REGRETTING the day she tasted the FORBIDDEN FRUIT
