Super Woman

I wanna become superwoman

learn Portuguese in sixty seconds

end pollution single-handedly

feed rice-a-roni to the planet

win awards left and right.

I wanna become super woman

paint the Taj Mahal red

knock down bureaucrats by the dozens

create creative pandemonium

flying off the edge of everything.

Super woman.
