CATECHISM

Where is thy kindness

Hid in the heart

Where is thy cruelty

Below the belt

What doth the one hand

Holds the heart

What doth the other

Unbuckles the belt

Who sings thy song

My soul and my sex

To whom do they sing

Each to the other

Where is thy kindness

Below the belt

Where is thy cruelty

Hid in the heart
