A virgin she was
Sexual purity was her watchword
Never to defile her temple
But there she was
Blood oozing out of her genital
Gang-raped by four fiercely looking beasts
There she laid;
Sweating profusely and yelling
She had declined sex
But they took carnal knowledge of her with a rage
Shame O’ Shame!
She stared into space
And recounted her vow to her late father
To be sexually pure, always
Tears gushed down her cheeks.
A knife in her pale hands, shivering in the cold night
Suicide to end it all
Curtain fell. Black out.
Blood oozed out of her nose
She was gone
A victim of circumstance
Say NO to rape! Report Rape cases.
