Woman (Iv) - Poem by Gert Strydom

(in answer to D. J. Opperman)

With her decision and action she brought calamity
to her husband and every human being,

she did send humanity to the apocalypse
but she did repent in her days from that hour

and yet she carries to eternity
her monthly pain from that time,

she has got the ability to make or break a man,
to bring him to honour or to scandalise him

but at a time the Saviour came from her loins
and of everyone she did love Him most

when God as a man did pay respect to her,
did talk with authority about selfless love.
