The thought of going crazy is a pretty reasonable guess for how rabies torments its victims.

As the Bible says in Corinthians, “If I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have charity, I am nothing.” It is all too easy to ignore the needs of those around us.

Second, because the title suggests romantic love but the poem is about mother and daughter. The poem is written as if spoken by Carol Ann Duffy to her mother, whose name is Marilyn. The poem comes from Mean Time (1993).
