Othello's women -WIN

The virtuous white ewe of the black ram
Shifting her loyalty like her mother 
As she wanted to live as she loved him
Oh, Alas! She has secretly married the moor.
Tricked by Emilia and pitched sexier
Both the women differently portrayed
Contrast between the two is key factor
The three women are used, abused and misused.

Emilia quite ahead of her time
Through her the bard comments on relation
Between husband and wife of a lifetime
Women as submissive in tradition
She goes on to suggest wrongs of women
Are the result of mistreat by husband
The ills of husband instruct the women
The three women are used, abused and misused.

Bianca is in great contrast in theme
Presenting the lowest call of woman
Something that is most apparent in crime
The way in which she is treated by men
Iago plays on great contrast between
Casio’s good treatment of both instead
The three women are used, abused and misused.

Women in Othello used in number
Of ways with class of the women differed
The way men act towards strangely rather
The three women are used, abused and misused.

* Rhyme scheme - 'ababbcbC ababbcbC ababbcbC bcbC',

I have revised the refrain "C" as this one is an old poem

    I enjoyed your surmise, olden and true. This took me way back to 1986. The only play I ever attended was Othello. It was far and away from what I thought about plays and the theater. As impressed as I was, you would have thought I would have attended another.
