Lost Virtue Of Virginity

Cupid said, to Artemis:
“Is chastity, sublime sin?
“Should piety, not be, price of bliss”
Artemis quipped, to his chagrin!

Is worth its while, this vain discourse
On how to harness, human lust
And institutionalize, our intercourse
In the precincts, of a faith august!

Between instinct, and modesty
Lies paradox, of a prized hymen
How womanhood, bears travesty
Inflicted by, moralistic men!

Tissues of passion, as if not
Sanctums of solace, divinity!
Blasphemous, is the social rot
Lost Virtue Of Virginity!
