Perhaps we ought not judge,
unless we have walked in another’s shoes.
(Hiatus Sought from Pious Thought)
The unwed daughter stands her ground,
Seeking strength; may it abound,
And her unborn child be found.
Rubberneckers feign to care.
With rumors flying everywhere.
As her parents rise to fame,
Sound bites seize upon her shame.
With ill will,
From a public placing blame.
Can we step away, refrain,
From our dominant domain?
Time to leave
None of us is free from stain.
Ought we not, without delay,
Our charades to throw away?
Though she slipped,
Let’s toss the script.
Perhaps we should not prey, but pray.
