1864: Vitalis of Gaza Did

He removed unto Alexandria
[aged about seven-ish x ten]

He listed each given name &
address of every sold-soul in

that city – hiring his hours as
a tool man & paid out to one

woman his earned-at gains
each day thus fixing dignities

He’d set her worth in being a
woman/ She did not deserve

to be used by men as lusted –
that lowly art then condoned

by her Church in her foul city
They gave up old professions

to live as women without ills
& Vitalis was killed by a fool/
