Subj: in those days

in days of yore
women were wenches
and men wore breeches
all the animals spoke
most in riddle
or played something
like a fiddle
wise women in the wood
were witches
those in the city
were of the court
men on the field
were warriors
and those back home
were politicians
claiming the faith
but allowing others
to live in filth
we build on lore
in days of yore

Penned by my hand on the 23rd of Scarlatan, in the year 624 AF.
