Pierced for Your Own Transgressions

As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout,
So is a lovely woman who lacks discretion.
Proverbs 11:22 [NKJV]

Post-Christian pornstar unsubdued,
My lady—you are too tattooed;La Donna
bored, studded, and nearly as cheap
as everyone else tossed on the heap.
You don’t excite, inspire or alarm.
You’re just a big Alterna-Bore. No harm
done to me; baby you’re a pincushion
of piercingly superficial fashion
Neither tribal nor demonic—just silly.
I pity you, pierced like that willy-nilly…

Some conserva-matron with a gun
is edgier, riskier (and way more fun)
Israeli soldiers are hotter than you.
1940’s pinups sexier. It’s true.
That’s why we won. Now they’re losing it.
And so am I…  but thanks for choosing it.

(War)
