See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil and

Do no Evil

 

Control and censor what we see,

hear only what is deemed correct

by ancient rules, tradition bound,

by dead fore-fathers long since gone

Speak not our thoughts, stay calm, serene

These are a woman's treasured charms

If woman’s place is in the home,

can here dreams be ever known?

Yet forbidden thoughts they must arise

from deep within a dampened soul

Forbidden fruit, forbidden desire

A smouldering heart has secret fire
