Mercy Mayaki

Mercy Mayaki short poem

Beloved virgin of rare charm
from the Mid-west.
Oh how I long to stare
into your eyes Divine!
Day and night they blossom
like sunflowers at sunrise.
Shall I liken them to those
of an Angel in realms above?
Or to those of a mermaid
in Oceans beneath?
Your Eyes would sure reprove
the tyrannies of despots,
and illuminate paths to tread
by night-fall.
Perhaps some-day they’ll
become the pride of Igarra:
The land of your Fathers,
for beyond all reasonable
doubts, your kind of eyes
are scarcely seen in a century.

The plan was thought out, Execution nearly flawless, In and out of the bank, Two men so lawless. Tellers shook, guns drew, Security was a fill in, The managers off too, A day when no one could lose. Twenty seconds
