How We Mythologise

This week's contribution to Ronovan's Decima Challenge #54 with BIRTH as the prompt word on the D rhyme line



How We Mythologise

When Joseph found his wife with child
he was suspicious as she'd not
found time to let him have the lot;
he thought she may have been defiled.

She claimed that she had spent a wild
night sleeping with some holy ghost,
but being young, inclined to boast,
and noticing her growing girth,
invented tales of virgin birth;
because otherwise, she was toast.
