Getting Nun.

Getting Nun.

Convent-tional woman
she spent her
nights fantasizing,
after lights out.
Her fondled rosary
was neatly tucked away,
and the sheets pulled
when the urge struck.
At only 31 she was
tempted often
by the snake,
in the garden of eve,
flowerless though was her
tiny room, stark white,
habits all of white and black.
Prayer was no partner to
white hot bliss,
thus she was a
victim of lust,
as she fled from
what chaste her.


Married to God

which I respect

quite highly

even as I question

human needs

not even touching

on sequestered

sexless?? priests

and I suppose heaven

will be filled with virgins

not of the muslim faith

numbering 72 per martyr

but of the catholic creeds

all waiting to

consecrate their vows....

when thier immediate

mortal need is now.
