Why is Martha’s Vineyard shunning me??

Is it my defense of female genital mutilation?


Bloody but unbowed!


UD‘s contribution:


Martha’s Vineyard, Be Not Proud

Martha’s Vineyard, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art none.
For those whom thou think’st thou dost shun
Are shunnèd not, poor Martha, nor yet canst thou diss me.

My barring from parties which but superficial be,
Gives me much pleasure; thus let disinvitations flow,
Happily this best of men does from thee go,
Rest from you libs, and soul’s delivery.

Thou art slave to cash, glitz, pr, and richer men,
And dost with status, cliques, and snobb’ry dwell,
Yet outcast solitude can serve us just as well…
Tis better than intimate dinners!  Why swell’st thou then?
All summer seasons past, I wake eternally
And the Vineyard shall be no more; Martha, thou shalt die!
