Mercurial messengers of meaning,
Signallers, ambassadors - eyes!
Adroit manipulators of mind-set.
Flashing, flickering, fluttering,
Emitting anger, anguish and ambition.
Eyes are mirrors of our souls.
Reaching, touching, affecting others -
The eyes communicate confidence,
Intimate trust or insecurity.
Surveyors of the world around us,
Purveyors of information to the mind
And conveyors of truthful images.
The eyes bridge the physical gap
And become the porters of perversity;
Ambassadors of affection and alliance.
Remember the power of your eyes -
Your very own special secret agents -
Emissaries, adversaries - power points.
