The power female

Aristophanes' tragic Greek tale:
Great warriors felled, nay by sword nor gale.
"No more feet to the sky!"
"Nor plump rears held high!"
 Lysistrata spoke the power female.

*edited down to count on the kind advice of Dr. Rahm.

    We just had this play go off at our regional theatre. I like your rhyme scheme. This is original in approach. Thank you for your kindness and regards from Gerard

    HI, Scott, this shows you know more about Greek mythology than I do! As for my senryu, the form was too short for me to explain myself. The "sinner" had repented. That is why he was redeemed. Kind of like the father rejoicing over his prodigal son returning to the fold. I don't believe God creates sinners. We just become as sinners as we live life, but those that repent and do their best to live good lives are able to follow the straight path! Luv, Andrea

    Yes, doc, I have played a little loose with this one. It should be edited to keep strict count.

    It's a winning Limerick. But are you sure about the syllable counts?, Scott. Please give it once over
