Are you the Aphrodite of the Greek tales
Or the Artemis who admirers drooling sent?
No, for Aphrodite had her little flaws
And Artemis the fortunes of Orion bent.
Nor are you the stunning star that the Magi led.
For the over-told story of the Magi is as old as dirt
But your drowsy rounded eyes look so cunning fresh;
The kind of tools that the will men pervert.
The famous Ishtar cannot be your match
For she lured with looks in order to kill;
And Inanna may have tried to rival you a bit
Had she not given in to Dumuzi’s antique skill.
And tired ...

Kenya feels ennobled to celestial heights,
Utter pride prevails and every heart delights,
Dreams you’ve knocked into the hearts of the young;
Odds and impossibilities have become far-flung,
So near and dear is hope that knows no bounds!
Barry, what panacea is known to your heart,
