Crime and Punishment

After (or would it be before?) Dostoyevsky.

 

“Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow

and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children”

Genesis, 03, 16.

 

So much must a woman love her companion,

after God has said weird, even cursed words.

By acute one wisdom, once she taught man

science of good and evil, really then needed

for their own survival; without it, by now,

where and what just would be all of us?

We know we were to be naught over naught.

Thank women, world has grown and grown,

sons and daughters professing more and more

one loyal cult that consecrated as saint shrine

this earth we have inherited from forefathers

and so stern a God.
