Not wanting to be rescued
from the twin, sin cities,
she’s unwillingly led away
by a man she barely loves and pities.

Unable to follow God’s direction
and her husband’s leadership,
she succumbs to her heart’s lust
for a final look, as the horizon dips.

Governed by Jezebel’s spirit,
having forgotten that Jehovah honors His Word,
she’s transformed into a pillar of salt
for a life no longer preserved.

Fighting tears from losing his wife
Lot takes careful steps backwards,
to gaze on her form one last time
before with a new life going forward.
