The ruined maid

Ballad format with phatic talk. Call and response (turn taking). Dialogue between two girls. 1 is a prostitute and the other a farm laborour. Talks in cliches - distances herself from her old self. repeats 'ruin' all the way through. 

Has an authentic sense of voice.

Shock ending with the change of dialect.

Both jealous of each others lifestyles.

Seems to raise questions then leave them unanswered.
