Found Poem

This is a most unfortunate affair
and will probably be
much talked of.

The loss of virtue
in a female
is irretrievable,

one false step
involves her in
endless ruin,

her reputation
is no less brittle
than it is beautiful,

she cannot be
too much guarded
in her behaviour

towards the undeserving
of the other sex.

From Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen
