A Stone's Throw - Elma Mitchell

STUDY
PLAY
She'd felt men's hands
Greedy over her body
But ours were virtuous,
Of course
Sarcasm - Because the caught her in the act of adultery so she should be used to being handled roughly by men
And if our fingers bruised
These were love bites, compared
To the hail of kisses of stone
Metaphor/Contrasts - its making a comparison between the stones and the rough hands of the men
Preacher, God-merchant, God-knows-what
Biblical Allusion - symbol of Jesus, but also making a mockery of him
