Call me Crazy

By Gideon Mutai

You will call me crazy
Or even think I am lazy
But don’t forget my name is daisy
Thank God my vision is not hazy
To note your handsomeness
Indeed you are awesome
But just call me crazy daisy.

Your smile sends waves of ecstasy
Yes all the way down my spine
Talk of a surge of happy hormones
So in your pursuit I’ll not resign
And my request don’t decline
But your ear to me incline
In you my worries I’ll confine
And we will our hopes and goals combine
Even as our targets align
When the marriage certificate we’ll sign

How good is to love and to be loved?
And more so when that love is true
And every morning it is new
The common colour being blue
I think without much ado,
I’ll clear my throat and utter “Yes, I do”
I know this sounds weird
But just call me crazy daisy

The impossible with Him it is
He has done great to the family of Liz
We are not an exception
Remember this is not a misconception
Or perhaps a bad perception
Begin thinking of where we’ll have reception
As you stop calling me crazy daisy
And call me sweetheart and darling and dear and…


A New Foe List

By Gideon Mutai


I never had them before

Or if there were,

I couldn’t easily pinpoint them

Except for the universal enemy


I am going to create a new list

Yes, a list of mine enemies

I realized I need them more

More than I need my friends


You gonna make me stronger in life

Invaluable lessons you taught me

I now know how to deal with people

Because of you my enemy


It is not based on merits

That you qualified to be my enemy

But you desired that I have a foe list

Fortunately, you’re top in the list


I don’t know if I’ll pray for you

And love you as I do my friends

Rem’ I am a human being like you

And I don’t recall pampering my enemy


It’s so sad that it takes long to make friends

But only few seconds to create enemies

You shouldn’t have suffered business create rift

Think of where we have come from


I beg to end with this stanza

Many elucidations will dilute my message

Unusually, I will become busy now onwards

So won’t be communicating as usual.
