The Modern Girl's 23rd Psalm - Poem by r.a. bentinck

As long as society is her shepherd
She shall always want.
They will always make her lie
In green pastures for promiscuous
And commercial gains.
She will be led in paths of unrighteousness
In the name of fame, fashion and
Material gains.
Yes, there will always be valleys, shadowy
places, death and destruction.
Evil will she always fear for
The rest of her days-
The Creator will be the furthest
From her mind.
Their rod and staff will not
Provide divine comfort
In her times of spiritual need.
They will feast at her table
For all to see.
Trials and tribulations will
Anoint her head-
And her stress cup will
Always runneth over.
Surely perils and heartaches
Shall follow her all the days
Of her life:
And she will dwell in their
House of indoctrination and manipulation
Forever and ever.
Amen.
