There once was a girl on a pole

Who had a great virtuous goal

Called whorish and loose

She suffered abuse

But now she can pay to enroll

    Go on, girl! And let me know if you need a private tutor. ;)

    Good for her. It's not always easy trying to get an education in this world and some people have to do things that go against their morals just to do it. Whether it's like the girl in Your limerick who got a bit into sex work (though, she's probably only dancing sexily on the pole and maybe even a few lap dances here and there), working in animal factory farms, following certain unethical orders by a company that affects not just the environment but impoverished people, etc. Everybody needs to live and some have to do worse things than others to get out of the hell holes that they're in. May they escape and never have to look back, let alone go back.
