Sonnet: Whither Modesty?

God gave some beasts, a coat of wool and fur;
To fish He gave it scales; to birds feathers;
So that in winter, they could be warmer,
And give to man, his much needed leathers!

And not one beast had need to wear a dress!
Also Adam and Eve, until exiled!
When shame of nudity filled them excess,
They hid ’hind leaves as serpent Satan smiled!

But this had happened many years ago;
Yet, look how modern men, women are dressed!
So transparently, scantily and Lo,
Let wrath of God be upon them accursed.

For acting’s sake, stark-nakedly they love!
Both men, women as God looks from above.
