Gothic Jill’s Genesis
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
Jack and Jill
went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down
and broke his crown
and Jill came tumbling after.
Such was the nursery rhyme
on the university professor’s mind.
Jill, though whipped,
was not interrogated for all that did transpire.
As lectures passed
in time Jill cast
away her “girl next door” attire.
Fiction of a young professor’s lust:
Jill’s tanned breasts became a pale and Goth-like bust.
Gothic Jill transcends the philosophical;
and for the professor’s students,
Jill became a case study.
For many –in time, an imaginary sex buddy
as set forth in the professor’s chronicle.
