Woman of Body and Bones

Woman of Body and Bones

A Poem by Caroline Maia

This is a poem about how the church views women who are non religous and the judgments that they put upon them.


Woman of body and bones 

Annointed with blood on her mighty thrown  

She sings to her subjects down below 

To a world that only she knows  

Wrapped in beads and velvet coats 

As holy as red wine 

And as feared as sunlight sublime 

She stands tall 

Strutting down the path of her execution trial  

With a look in her eye that pays ohmage to sin 

And a smile that makes devils grin 

Woman of body and bones 

 Ruler of man’s heresy and vice

I am reminded of how wrong the Church has been on so many occasions. Child abuse is another area, and unmarried mothers. Can't stand organised religion these days.Thought provoking write.
