A Bold Dichotomy

by Sharlyn Guthrie  
9/23/2007 / Poetry

Blemished by men who abused her
Oppressed by the enemy's voice
Livid with rage and hounded by shame
Drusilla seduced men by choice

Brazen, she flaunted her figure
Obsessed with her cheap little tricks
Levied fierce wounds on her victims
Duping the simple for kicks

Beguiled, the nave were attracted
Oblivious to her disease
Laughing, she led them to Hades
Defiling their honor with ease

But, as her suitors paraded
One gazed right into her soul
Looked on her cold heart with pity
Damned her demons to Sheol

Blood was required for her purchase
Only His blood to be sure
Love paid the ultimate ransom
Declaring the prostitute pure

Broken, she fell down before Him
Owned the full guilt of her wrongs
Loudly proclaimed Him her Master
Danced and exulted with songs

Blushing duplicitous leaders
Offered to pelt her with clay
Loathed the barefaced interloper
Distastefully spoiling their day

"Batter and bruise her, you cowards.
Or have you once happened to sin?
Lob a stone only if you are perfect.
Do step right on up and begin."

Beaten, each slowly retreated 'til
Only the woman remained
Lustrous in clean garments flowing
Devoid of each blemish and stain

I love the Lord Jesus with all of my heart. Besides being a teacher, I have been a newspaper guest columnist and have had several short stories and poems published. I love extracting beauty from the ordinary: vegetables, notes, fabric, flowers, paper, weeds, words.
