A Prostitute


Young, heart broken,
Free giving, her soul to life,
Free receiving, life into her soul.

Her song ready,
Her pictures posted,
Young, beautiful, offered.

A prostitute she is called.
Called for service, paid with a fee.
A human, a woman, young and ready.

Life’s opportunity opened up.
Her way to destruction, maybe, interrupted.
An umbrella of opportunities opened up by a mistake.
By the error of a man who offered to pay and take.

We judge by what we see,
We judge by what we hear,
We elected hypocrisy.

Will we help to destroy a girl,
Will we help to save a soul?
Humans together, Humans infused...

..A Prostitute.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
