Gorgeous Conquest - Poem by Uriah Hamilton
Assured of invitations
To the moonlight dance
By the hidden lake shrine,
The young girl with mystic eyes
Smiles like a pirate
Making love to another man’s wife.
She is the attractive daughter
To a cocaine importer from the east,
Her perfume is exotic flowers
Flown in from Japanese gardens.
Her father tries to rigorously exclude her
From the sordidness of the family business
But her mesmerizing beauty
Makes her sought after by the powerful.
One day, she will make secret deals
With spies and kings and extravagant cutthroats
To bring the world humbly to her feet
As she ascends historic altitudes of dominance
In her conquest of gorgeous success.
