Among those born of women,
there has not risen anyone greater than
John the Baptist, but
he was killed by two women – mother and daughter
John was not afraid of King Herod,
how could he be afraid of
mere women? However,
Who could win over a woman who was harboring grudge?
Who could stop a woman who was holding poison in her mouth?
A woman who was sharpening sword for revenge would sheathe it back?
John who was ignorant of woman
and didn’t try to know woman –
The voice of the wilderness that made the King tremble,
was silenced by a woman’s wrath.
What a humiliating death as a man!
What’s so big deal about how to die?
Even Jesus who is God died a horrible death by ordinary men.
If you die a spectacular death,
your ragged life would look greater?
My life might be pretty shabby since I want to die a noble death.
Well, if I try to be afraid of women for the rest of my life,
I might be able to avoid the shameful death of John the Baptist….
