For what the wordly hate

For what the wordly hate The spiritual would wait Sexual intercourse after marriage A fanatical pursuit of Mary's image At what The Wordly jeer The spiritual would cheer The gravelly carriage Of The Domiciled in village What the former often waste The latter oftener preserve with haste The grossly undervalued chaste Sometimes ,a soon-to-be-spat-out toothpaste The Wordly eulogizes not Honesty Why mess around at all with a coward's modesty? The untouchable theories about Fate Religious men's most enduring bait.
