The princes have fled (Lam 1:6-1:6)

Vav

“All her majesty

Has departed

From daughter Zion!

Her princes

Have become

Like stags

That find no pasture.

They fled

Without strength

Before the pursuer.”

All the great majesty that was part of Zion has now departed. Her princes have become like wandering stag deer with no place to pasture. They even fled without any strength before the pursuing Babylonians. This verse starts with the Hebrew consonant letter Vav. Each verse after this will use the next letter of the Hebrew alphabet in this acrostic poem.
