SINNER / SAINT


Suppose you wed the whore -
you'd never be sure
she wouldn't regress to her old habit
and resort to fornicating like a rabbit!

However, if you wed the saint
it's not likely she'd falter and faint
and neglect her man for gain -
she'd always perform her duty despite the pain!

Life is short and we have just years
to achieve our ends with our dears!
It all depends on one's goals -
perhaps a single life under bare poles!

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
