Carnal Pleasures

Their mother rejected biblical names; therefore, there were no Marias or Johns in the brood of thirteen.  She felt blessed that in that pre-vaccination era only one child succumbed to childhood disease.  Her thirteen became twelve, an even number of six boys and six girls.  The girls led wholesome lives working hard and raising families, but the boys ascribed to their mother’s rejection of the bible and indulged in carnal pleasures, mistreating wives and children.  Little by little, diseases riddled their bodies.  While the sisters mourn the passing of yet another, the remaining brothers continue to drink their sorrows away.
