Keep Your Eye on Eye

  

If you follow UFC and MMA you’ll note the lady fighters getting a lot of play. Ronda Rousey recently said she’d beat Floyd Mayweather in an MMA bout. I wouldn’t go that far.


However, there is an MMA lady fighter I have my eye on. She’s currently ranked fifth in the 135 # weight class and is climbing. I like her because she recovered from an accident as a teenager when a drunk driver hit her and her dad while they were walking. After lying in a hospital bed for three months with a broken back, she vowed she would toughen herself. Thus giving us the fighter we know as “Evil” Eye.

I like Jessica Eye not just for her comeback story but for her name. I wouldn’t be a Silliman if I didn’t. I can talk about her while making all my grammar teachers spin in their grave. When they hear this poem, their ears are sure to perk:


There’s a lady boxer with the last name Eye
Can’t erase her from my mind, even if I try
I’d pick her for my team and all will ask me “Why?”
I’d say just to screw things up, I wants to play with Eye
They’d say “Who?” “I happen to like Eye”
“Whoa, you’re getting deep!” will be always their reply
Sounds a bit narcissistic, will be their fervent cry
Sorry, can’t help it, I happen to like Eye

Eye will knock your block off, better keep your eye on Eye!
Jessica “Evil” Eye, she’d make a Marine turn shy
With her round house kicks, which she lands like a guy
Will send you back to the future, like Marty McFly
You’ll wake up in a daze with your brain asking why?
She heats up in the ring like it’s summer in Dubai
She’ll make your whimper “Mommy” become a full blown cry
It’s like you’re trapped in the hood, corner of Bed & Stye
You’ll wake up in a daze with your brain asking why

After all this you’re wondering why I try
To post a little poetry on a boxer I call Eye
You think it’s cuz I jus messin’ wit you, Sly?
Naw, it ain’t all that. I just happen to like Eye
Like onions with pastrami, topped both ends with rye
Some things ya like, some things don’t fly
Some times you wrong, some times you sigh
Some times you wonder why
But here it’s simple: I just happen to like Eye
