Stepping In Hellfire

Her eyes are red balls of fire
And yours reek of lusty desire
For she is beauty in your ugly shire
That has slowly reduced to a mire

Why blame your thirst on her attire?
It’s your salacity and urge to sire
Why else did you get her for hire?
She’s a woman not a bunched quire

But like a dessert she’s laid for the squire
Awaiting her fate at the isle of the spire
With beady eyes full of hatred and ire
She gives in to her fate and into the hellfire

    At one end they say women are becoming equal to men, the other end of the coin shows women are being harassed more than ever!

      Things haven’t changed much for women. They have been covered up better, that’s the only difference!!
