Enchanted and Eloped

Enchanted and Eloped

written by: Ndaba Sibanda



she was short and slender
her voice vivid and tender

it beamed an invisible smile
infectious even from a mile

she was a blessing to her patients
as she treated them like her parents

she told them high blood was manageable
with diet and lifestyle changes—all was doable

one day one foreign suitor charmed away the adorable
the one doctor whose services poor elders found invaluable
