Michelle Obama…America’s Chocolate Queen
BY Menelik CHARLES
Your skin is brown and clothing astounds
yet your beauty does confound
You’re proud of face and walk with grace
yet they can’t wait til you’re replaced
You reach to embrace where others shake
and Hug where others hesitate
By the President you stand near
and yet it’s YOU they fear
You read of smears ‘n’ sneers and
comments about your rear
You hear it all and stand so tall
while enemies stall ‘n’ fall
You’re the 1st Lady we applaud
(c) Menelik Charles.
— with Marilyn Aunty Mayo Cazoe-Cummings
She’s a lady ￼
She has to be in the Top 5 of women who clean up well, because I have seen those pictures where she’s not really cute at all- but when she’s in 1st Lady character, OMG, I want her on my arm. All politics aside- I love this sistah.
