Note To Exile

by Childeric Maxy (author's profile)


Note to Lexie

Listen, Lexie:
It was my fault on
leaving you, going to prison.
Still, I fight for my ransom,
but the rest they own.
Hear my threnodic song
even though I am behind bars.
You are still my "star"
I want to see your face
and I need your grace
Please have mercy and grace
Who can take your place?
Now, you are seventeen;
you're lovely as a queen!
But you are still my princess
my Achilles' heel and weakness.
I beg for your forgiveness
May the fire of your wrath be extinguished
I am already being punished
To you I have a short reach
Happy birthday, baby I wish!

Happy birthday, Lexie. At Stanley, WI
Your father, Childeric
