Bahamian Queen of Deception
A Poem from the novel
" The Essence of Poetry: Gerald's Initial Book of Poems"
Written by: Gerald L. Ingraham
Let us not fail to believe that she is strong
Even if she is a woman who is petite.
She has had the advantage all along
With her poise, it being more than a feat.
She is know for her way with men,
The way she alters and molds them
She makes a bold one feel vulnerable within
By staring in his eyes as time holds him.
She can do as she may please
With a single strut near you.
She has made men get on bent knees
And if you do it, she wouldn't hear you.
Only she can provoke a true thug
To vacate from his own streets
With a simple kiss on the cheek and hug
Just seconds after she is who he meets.
She can make him feel
That we shall make rapturous history.
Then, lose him with thrill
Leaving only a heartbroken mistery.
For a strong, beautiful woman
With her discenible curves and body slender,
She would smile and seem so wanton
That gentleman turn more tender
Committing themselves to her.
Yet, she plays a seductive woman so good
Knowing what she wants and what she prefers.
She just reserves herself like lady should.
She may deceive and she seduces,
But she reflects her horrible past
Of unkind rejections and cruel refuses,
When she was an outcast.
Now, she makes and breaks a promise
After the previous fellow has gone,
Because she is a deceit queen of the Bahamas
Sitting on her very own highly pretigeous thrown.
