Wonder Woman! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Paradise Island far away,
That's where a child was born,
Her destiny, to save the day,
Defeat defiant scorn...
She trained with sisters in the sun,
Learnt martial skills as well,
With oh so many conquests won,
As if beneath her spell...

With beauty that could tame a man,
As if he were her slave,
She rarely schemed or formed a plan,
To make such men behave...
Her magic lasso soothed the soul,
It kept them in their place,
For she, through it, had gained control,
With every single phrase...

Her magic girdle gave her strength,
As if she knew no bounds,
So that she'd go to any length,
As long as she had grounds...
For justice sake, she intervened,
She set the record straight,
As if the very streets she cleaned
Of vermin full of hate...

The criminals would come and go,
Yet few of these returned,
As soon as they were in the know,
Their plans were wisely spurned...
They couldn't beat the Justice League,
Calamity at best,
The Flash was like a lightning streak
That blurred from east to west...
Green Lantern's ring changed everything,
Aquaman turned the tide
And Superman was there to bring
His power and his might...

Yet Wonder Woman, we love you,
For your beguiling smile,
Because your heart is lovely, too,
Beyond your sense of style...
And there are twinkles in your eyes
That grant us hope and peace,
You're loved more than you realise,
With love that cannot cease...

As long as you remain sublime,
Our Princess you will be...
Outside of space, outside of time,
For all eternity...
A thousand years may come and go,
Your beauty stays the same,
As if your legend's meant to grow,
Though not all know your name...

Enough to know, you'll do your best,
Injustice to defeat,
So that good people can be blessed,
Their peaceful lives complete...
Thank God for heroes! Yes, indeed!
For Wonder Woman, too!
A magic lasso you don't need,
For I'm in love with you...
