    Inspired bu Ursula Rucker's "Super Sister"

    Shelectric
    Moon deep
    and eclectic
    But neglected
    and constantly
    dis-respected

    She's Super
    in sonic ways
    with skin existing in
    various hues of brown
    and glistening glaze

    For her we crave
    She's a continuous craze
    that will never fade out
    At the sight and sound of her
    we become instant slaves
    She inspires us to dream, to sing
    to write, and to recite,
    keeping us in a continuous daze

    Amaze-
    ing Super Sister
    Soul kisser
    whose soul is
    a re-fining river

    We are born out
    of her
    Sprouting out of
    divinity's daughter
    only to slaughter
    her benevolence
    and degrade her essence
    We do not realize
    her power and the
    importance of her presence

    She will remain Super
    far beyond the existence of man
    Whether we learn to accept it or not,
    it is the Universe's plan

    Super sister
    I remember
    you as a pony tail
    and afro puff wearing child
    Now look at you
    You have become
    Nefertiti and Isis
    The price-less
    Princess of the Nile

    Your style
    is subject to
    everlasting gain
    and change
    Of the Universe,
    you have infinite reign
    Your pain is felt far
    and wide when you hurt
    Tears pour from many
    Moons and Stars,
    and even the Earth

    But when you're happy,
    your tears of joy transform
    into stars
    That re-plenish and strengthen
    this world of ours
