Sealed in a Bottle

To avoid disappointments
They acted fast
Though illegal
They vowed
By all they had
To protect their men
From the other
The other half
Who loved to take
Take which was not
Never theirs
In shielding their own
They locked them in a bottle
Like golden roasted cashew nuts
They were there
Individual bottles
And remained faithful
And truthful until
Someday the bottle
With the little charm
Would break
But until then...
