Biblical Limericks: Pudendum

Solomon described her, foot to head
for poetry woos women to bed;
your navel is refined
may it never lack wine

but “navel” isn’t what Solomon said.

Our English translations are too tame
to accept what’s actually named,
for we can’t even say
the word vajayjay,
and we cover it all with great shame.

Song of Songs 7: 2

Seriously!  Did you know that the word “Pudendum”  is derived from the Latin word meaning “to be ashamed?”
