I Was Wonder Woman and Linda Carter Was the Perpetrator I was Wonder Woman while all my other friends were Superman, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America Aunt Tillieís porch was my invisible jet While all my friends were Superman, The Hulk, Captain America I was flying high above Orange Avenue Projects dreaming that Aunt Tillieís porch was my invisible jet looking down at kids swinging from monkey bars. I was flying above Orange Avenue Projects watching boys race each other on their BMX bikes, looking down at kids swinging from monkey bars girls riding their Huffys with the pink seats and glittery tassels that hang from The handlebars. Boys raced each other on their BMX bikes while I was Wonder Woman Watching girls from above ride their Huffys with glittery tassels that hang from the handlebars I made street bullies tell the truth with my magic water hose, me, Wonder Woman from a Paradise of Amazons stopping street thugs in an instant Making them tell the truth with my magic water hose. Bullets bounce off my sweat wristbands. Stop crooked crooks in an instant cuz Iím a superhero Where bullets bounce off my sweat wristbands. I can lift tanks, bend missiles like liquorish sticks cuz Iím a superhero fighting for justice in an un-American way lifting tanks and breaking missiles like number two pencils. Now that Iím done saving the day, my Aunt is calling me to come eat. We haviní kool-aid and fried spice ham sandwiches. My favorite.
