Mercy Mayaki
Author: Joseph Ogbonna


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 someday,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.

------- Author's Notes -------

To Mercy Mayaki with love
