Lot and His Daughters, public domain

As Sodom burned and met its fiery end
An old man called to God for his escape
The pious in their pews do now befriend
A story of rape

Two flowers clung to boughs against the storm
The tree, he left to die on the landscape
We celebrate it now in verse and form
A story of rape

A cave provided darkness he required
The horror of the tale we helped reshape
The truth, we took and burned in the same fire
A story of rape
