Baby Queen…

After performing at an open mic to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I was still on a poetic high several days later. I posted a short poem on Facebook and then decided to add a few lines to the original version and share here as well….

She sleeps in lip gloss and earrings
So she can dream pretty dreams
Shuns the simple things, opts for the extreme
Has goals smaller than the lumps on a pre-teen
Craves the attention to be seen
Those of you with daughters know what I mean
It’s time for some of us to intervene
Pull the societal pacifier – wean
…she has to be taught to be a Queen!
