The Rape Of Lucretia

She lay quietly musing 
onStreams of suitors.
  Chaste damsel she was,
Till men of the under-
World broke-in in 
Numbers,carried her to
Another world,under 
theStars,de-flowered her,
Men with steeled hearts,
Her pleas went to the 
Blood gushed out-but in 
Turns this saintly creature
Was ravaged.
   After a time,she bore 
Seeds of vagabonds,
Terrors-a bane of the 
Society,whose deeds,the 
Night Covers.
Peace and love are 
Strangers in their midst.
  Yet their fathers say 
They have done no wrong
Only showing her a better
  Weep for 
Lucretia,who a Brighter 
Future bargained.
Her woes increase as time
Passes by.
   For the rape of Lucretia
Is the rape of Africa.
