Take Off Your Habit
Take off your habit and become one
in a world of women, not a nun.
For what can you profit without a child?
A life of praying for the meek and mild?
And who so ever shall hear your prayer
An immortal one that you do swear
to give up your life for and never wed
and never understand the pleasures of bed?
I think that the God to which you pray
is non-judgmental but would probably say.
'Find you a man that I have made.
This my daughter is what I've prayed.'
