“Sown in dishonor”!
Ah! Indeed!
May this “dishonor” be?
If I were half so fine myself
I’d notice nobody!

“Sown in corruption”!
Not so fast!
Apostle is askew!
Corinthians 1. 15. narrates
A Circumstance or two!

    The verse she referenced is 1 Corinthians 1:15, “so that no one can say you were baptized in my name”, according to the Catholic Youth Bible. Just in case you wanted to know what she ment.

    I like the tone of this poem, and I can imagine her reciting it in an optomistic rebutting sort of voice.
