The Smile of Uriah Heep

Agnes:

Oh, what a smile Uriah Heep!
It makes me feel so vile and cheap
You’re planning Papa’s soon demise
An evil light shines in your eyes

You smile a sheepish little grin
Usurping is your grievous sin
My father is under your spell
But I know you are straight from hell

I shan’t marry you, no not I
If you must know the reason why
Your fiendish smile I can’t abide
It makes me want to run and hide

One day t’will be that I shall smile
A smile that will be so worthwhile
For you’ll be gone, without a trace
No ghastly grin upon your face

Another’s smile my eyes will greet
His lips will bring me kisses sweet
His love will be my endless song
Go to the night, where you belong!

Uriah Heep is a creepy character who is one of the antagonists in Charles Dickens novel, David Copperfield. He is working for David’s friend, Mr. Wickfield. He uses Mr. Wickfield’s love for drink that is exacerbated by the death of his wife, to confuse Mr Wickfield and blackmail him into signing him as a partner of the business. His ultimate goal is to marry Agnes, Mr Wickfield’s daughter. David Copperfield takes an instant dislike to Uriah when he meets him. This poem is written in the voice of Agnes, who eventually marries David Copperfield.

    When I saw this title , I thought, what the Dickens she on with now lol. This is a great take for the smile contest. He wrote a brilliant character in Heepy. I've been to Rochester, fascinating. Take care, Richard

    Thanks, Nette. Love Dickens. I've written another poem along a theme from Tale of Two Cities...Recalled to Life. :) My favorite character in David Copperfield was Tommy Traddles...I liked him so much in high school I drew skeletons all over my locker! :) Thanks for the post.
