Chastity

It is better to be chaste
Than not to be and be disgraced
And everyone tries to avoid such smears
Knowing such news can ruin careers

    Hello, Jon... nice way in expressing the chastity belt. it is better to keep it all wrapped up... i imagine how hard it is doe, somehow something will be slandered, ...good verse..Linda

    do you still think this applies today? i'm not too sure. i remember being warned about having a reputation ruined when i was a teenager but who ever imagined having pictures of yourself in compromising positions out there for all to see? it boggles my mind. ~ wonderful poem, though!

    Oh yes, Even locally men and women in teaching careers have had their careers ruined by getting involved in an affair. Police, Clergy, sports figures, even political figures. None are immune. Some are just more severely punished than others

    Hmmmmmmmm, true my dear. Yes, many political figures get in trouble for this. However, these days one can be chaste and still be smeared by innuendos. Great write! :)

    Thank you dear Eileen. Locally there have been teachers, clergy, police officers, political figures, etc. That have gotten entangled in an affair that has ruined or almost ruined their career. If the had just remained faithful they could have saved themselves a lot of heartache. There are some, I won't name names , that seem to be immune to the harsh penalties others have to pay.
