Our first image of a gorgeous black Aphrodite
To inhabit the halls of power with charm,
Mrs. Obama moves over the sacred fields deftly
Reclaiming the realm with femininine form.
Sensuously challenging those who dare deny
Her right to bare her bronze sun-kissed skin
As the queen in a staid pallid white world,
She assumes her role with no hint of giving in.

A worthy image of beauty to accompany a giant of a man,
Mrs. Obama came riding eastward her sword at her side.
She planned for an agenda about change most would scorn,
As a product of northern honing oil and heartland pride.
And she feared not the hard and awful destiny ahead
For a beautiful black woman in a loveless town;
As she brought her fashion for elegance and flair,
Allowing a gawking world to see her face was brown.

As a Capricorn, Mrs. O keeps her keen focus on success,
Never surrendering to impatience, doubt or hesitation.
Her aim is narrow and exact, skillfully chosen
And moored on a carefully thought out foundation.
So doing she has inspired black women to reach higher
And see themselves as lovely creatures of great worth,
Endowed by God to motivate, teach, feed and entertain,  
With her nurturing, an emerging color diverse earth.

    Very good reading, Albert, and I certainly agree with all of it, except...yeh there is an except, and I don't understand how so many outsiders think DC is a loveless town? I know it well, and it is a wonderful place to be, I have never seen any unfriendly atmosphere that so many outsiders think makes up DC, it just ain't so. But I like you portrait of our First Lady, I too, thinks she is wonderful.

    I don't get involved in politics very often, but you are so right. Mrs. Obama is an extremely beautiful lady inside and out I am sure. You spoke so well in your writing, congratulations on being featured. Well done my friend. Write on! :)
