Enchanted and Eloped

By Ndaba Sibanda

Enchanted and Eloped

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
