Red River

How can something bleed every month and not die?

Red river, cup of blood.

Red river, promising to flood.

Young girls in villages need pads so that they can go to school.

Red river, sealing handicap.

Red river, intellect nap.

Always Pads have to be scented to hide the smell.

Red river, hidden scorn.

Red river, cast when born.

9 months is a break from the menstrual mental breakdown

Red river, feeding life.

Red river, value rife.

Bleeding not from a wound but from a womb.

Bleeding life raised from a tomb.

Hail Mary.
