Small Town Scarlet Letter

She's the talk of the town
Stringy hair, slender figure
She gets around

They know her name
Spread the gossip
Add to her shame

Not nearly enough
The dollars come nightly
Feeding the kids is tough

Husbands pretend not to lust
As wives decide
Their attitudes are just

She is invisibly labeled
Tainted and Toxic
By hypocrites 'round the Table

She pays daily for her sins
And silently wishes for grace
But in her small town, nobody wins
