Wonder Woman - Poem by Keith Shorrocks Johnson

Once a sweet little girl in a white toga
An innocent among the denizens
Your adolescence on Themyscira
Aroused bare-thigh but leathered Amazons

Whose patriarchy-upending mayhem,
Disturbed by a DV Fokker nose-dive,
Planted the seed of what you became
When you brought the pilot ashore alive -

Diana the kick-ass demi-goddess
Daughter of Hippolyta and Zeus
Laced in a boob-hugging bodice,
The War God's micro-skirted nemesis -

A Wonder Woman who stayed fate's hand
To save mankind - but stole a kiss in no-man's land.
